    Don't forget to read the Gettysburg Address, one of the most famous speeches ever spoken. It's on the left as you come in. Notice how it's written as a story. Lincoln was famous as a storyteller.

    Lots of construction happening around the memorial. I went with my mom and she had a hard time with the steps. We found out afterward their is an elevator to the left of the stairs
