. . . on November 19, 1863, Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address. Amazingly brief (the entire speech consisted of only 10 sentences), it is nevertheless justly celebrated as one of history's most famous and profound speeches. However, by modern standards, it's much too long-winded for today's short attention spans --
And rather than attending some big ceremony, today's Lincoln would just tweet it from his local Starbucks while enjoying a grande cappuccino. Or perhaps a nice pumpkin spice latte?
