How Many Soldiers Were There?
What Happened After The Battle of Gettysburg?
After the Battle of Gettysburg the town rebuilt their city. Since this was such a small town it took a long time for it to be rebuilt with such a small number of people. After everything was rebuilt the town threw a big celebration and invited Abraham Lincoln to speak. On November 19, President Lincoln used the dedication ceremony for the Gettysburg National Cemetery to honor the fallen Union soldiers and redefine the purpose of the war in his historic Gettysburg Address.
“Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty
and dedicated to the proposition that all men are
created equal."
