        Joan Ganz Cooney, Elmo, and Murray Recite the Gettysburg Address

        Watch Joan Ganz Cooney, Elmo, and Murray recite the Gettysburg Address as part of Ken Burns' challenge to all Americans to Learn the Address.

        To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address, documentarian Ken Burns, along with numerous partners, has launched a national effort to encourage everyone in America to video record themselves reading or reciting the speech. The collection of recordings housed on this site will continue to grow as more and more people are inspired by the power of history and take the challenge to Learn the Address.
