Bush-Brown Bust in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

Soon after entering the Soldiers National Cemetery, you will see a memorial to Abraham Lincoln and the speech he gave nearby, known today as the Gettysburg Address. Dedicated on January 22, 1912, the low, semi-circular expanse of white marble features this bronze bust in the middle. William Saunders, who designed the cemetery in 1863, allowed space for a memorial like this at one end.

Bronze tablets flank the bust by Henry Bush-Brown. The text of the Gettysburg Address appears on one side and President Lincoln's invitation to participate appears on the other.
