Spielberg to be Keynote Speaker at Gettysburg Dedication
(voiced by Jeff Daniels)
What a wonderful idea for Spielberg to give the dedication at Gettysburg this November 19. Gettysburg was last seen making an appearance in Showtime’s Homeland, as the character Brody vibed liberty and bravery at the hallowed site. I’m glad that’s not the last look I’ll have of Gettysburg this year.
The Dedication Day events begin with a wreath laying ceremony at 9:30 a.m. Nov. 19 at the Soldiers’ National Monument. It continues at 10 a.m. at the rostrum with the official Dedication Day ceremony. It is there that Spielberg will speak. Both events are free and open to the general public.
The Dedication Day ceremonies are organized by The Lincoln Fellowship of Pennsylvania, Gettysburg National Military Park, Gettysburg College and the Gettysburg Foundation. Former Dedication Day speakers include actor Stephen Lang, Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor and President Dwight Eisenhower.
