The Gettysburg Address free pdf Excerpt from The Gettysburg Address: When Written, How Received, Its True Form Arnold, in his "History of Lincoln and the Overthrow of Slavery," asserts that the President "while on his way from the White House to the battlefield was notified that he would be expected to make some remarks," and that asking for some paper a rough sheet of foolscap was handed to him- "retiring to a seat by himself, with a pencil he wrote the address." Similarly Ben Perley Poore says in his "Reminiscences of Lincoln" that "his remarks at Gettysburg - were written in the car on his way from Washington to the battlefield, upon a piece of pasteboard held on his knee." In the beautiful story by Mrs. Andrews entitled "The Perfect Tribute," which, because of its wide circulation in the magazine in which it first appeared, and subsequently as a daintily printed book, has done much to form popular opinion of the composition and delivery of the Address, it is said that the President after gazing wistfully across the car at Edward Everett - who was not in it, having previously gone to Gettysburg by another route - appealed to Secretary Seward for the brown paper he had just removed from a package of books: "May I have this to do a little writing?" and then with a stump of a pencil labored for hours over his speech. On the contrary, General James B. Fry, who was present in the car as one of the escort, says that he is confident that the assertion that the Address was written in the train en route to Gettysburg is an error, and states, "I have no recollection of seeing him writing or even reading his speech during the journey, in fact there was hardly any opportunity for him to read or write."
