This Week in Elf History

On November 19, 1863, at the dedication ceremony of the Soldiers National Cemetery in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, President Abraham Lincoln delivered one of the most memorable speeches in American history. Charged by Pennsylvania’s governor, Andrew Curtin, to care for the Gettysburg dead, an attorney named David Wills bought 17 acres of pasture to turn into a cemetery for the more than 7,500 who fell in battle. Wills invited Edward Everett, one of the most famous orators of the day, to deliver a speech at the cemetery’s dedication. Almost as an afterthought, Wills also sent a letter to Lincoln—just two weeks before the ceremony—requesting “a few appropriate remarks” to consecrate the grounds. At the dedication, the crowd listened for two hours to Everett before Lincoln spoke. Lincoln’s address lasted just two or three minutes. The speech reflected his redefined belief that the Civil War was not just a fight to save the Union, but a struggle for freedom and equality for all. This was his stirring conclusion: “The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” Reception of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address was initially mixed, divided strictly along partisan lines. Lincoln himself was included in not being particular happy with his own speech. Nevertheless, the “little speech,” as he later called it, is thought by many today to be the most eloquent articulation of the democratic vision ever written.

North Pole City Commerce

For anyone wishing to be a part of the planning team for this years delivery night festivities, the North Pole City Commerce will be holding their monthly meeting at Mrs. Claus' kitchen and all ideas and volunteers are welcome to join. The meeting will start at 9 a.m. on Friday morning.

The North Pole City Council has put out their notices that they will not be meeting again until after the new year unless an emergency meeting is called. They want to wish everyone a very Happy holiday season and all of the members plan on attending the delivery celebration this year and hope to see you then.

Community Events

Refreshments will also be available.
