Probable actual spot where Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address


Gettysburg, Pennsylvania (PA), US
This is the most likely actual spot where the speaker's platform was located, from which Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address ON November 19th, 1863.

Contrary to popular belief, the speech was not delivered from the very ornately marked "Lincoln Address Memorial" closer to the street entrance; based on numerous photographic analyses, the location given here, inside the present-day cemetery, was most likely the actual spot.
