The Gettysburg Address - Animated

Imagine how Edward Everett (the politician and famed orator who had been invited to deliver the Gettysburg Address) must have felt when, after having delivered a carefully crafted speech lasting around two hours, was suddenly upstaged by Abraham Lincoln in just two minutes when the latter delivered what would turn out to be one of the most celebrated speeches in American History.

In those two famous minutes, Lincoln masterfully captured the principles of freedom and equality espoused by the Declaration of Independence, and emphasized both the importance and the cost of our unprecedented experiment in democracy, as well as our debt to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the sake of those noble ideals.

In case you need a reminder of the speech, here it is in typographic animated beauty for your viewing and listening pleasure:
