Abraham Lincoln, on horseback, leads the procession to the new Gettysburg cemetery

At ten o'clock in the morning, after putting finishing touches to his remarks, President Lincoln, on horseback, joined a procession led by military bands from the Gettysburg town square down Baltimore Street to the new National Cemetery about three quarters of a mile away. The program of the dedication of the new burial ground ran until mid-afternoon with thousands in attendance.  (By John Osborne)
