    This clip is from a 1982 civil war mini-series starring Gregory Peck, Stacy Keach, John Hammond, Julia Duffy, and others.

    In this scene, we have just witnessed the battle at Gettysburg, PA. Gregory Peck, playing the role of President Abraham Lincoln, delivers his Gettysburg Address on November 19, 1863. The President's speech was considered short but powerful. This left the audience in a state of awe, and their applause was delayed at the conclusion of the speech.
