On Wednesday, Nov. 20, Union Theater hosts a special roundtable of historians discussing the address and its legacy, followed by a dramatic presentation based on speeches inspired by the Gettysburg Address. The roundtable includes James Cornelius, curator of the presidential library’s Lincoln Collection; Martin Johnson, author of “Writing the Gettysburg Address”; Holly Kent, a history professor at the University of Illinois at Springfield; and Daniel Stowell, director of the Papers of Abraham Lincoln. They’ll explore the meaning and legacy of the address. Part of that legacy is the way Lincoln’s speech inspired others. After the roundtable, a special presentation will dramatize that inspiration as actors read portions of other speeches delivered at Gettysburg. They’ll present the words of Woodrow Wilson, Lyndon Johnson, Dwight Eisenhower, Tom Brokaw and more. Finally, on Sunday, Nov. 24, Union Theater will screen the documentary “The Gettysburg Story,” a gorgeous look at the battlefield, the address and their place in history.
