Lincoln gave the brief but powerful speech Nov. 19, 1863. He was participating in a dedication of a cemetery for soldiers killed earlier that year in the bloody-but-pivotal Civil War battle.

One webcast will be Nov. 19. Lincoln Collection curator James Cornelius will present "The Perfect Tribute," a 20-minute film about the speech.

The second webcast will be Nov. 22. Cornelius and Claire Jerry -- curator of the Paul Findley Archive at Illinois College -- will discuss the speech.
