Join WKNO at Hutchison School for a free public event featuring Ken Burns’s The Address: Film Screening and Video Booth.

150 years ago, Abraham Lincoln recited the Gettysburg Address on the famous Civil War battlefield. Ken Burns’s documentary filters history through the eyes of students at a boys’ school, who memorize the speech as a teaching tool. Ken Burns and PBS are challenging everyone across the country, especially students, to create a video of themselves reading or reciting the Gettysburg Address. After seeing the film in our video booth, join Hutchison’s film class and share your Gettysburg Address to be uploaded at learntheaddress.org.
