A group of 1,000 students from grades seven through 12 will gather Nov. 19 in Olean, N.Y., to recite -- in unison -- President Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address in honor of the 150th anniversary of the speech delivered in 1863 in Pennsylvania. "We look at the Gettysburg Address as something time-honored. In 269 words it tells the meaning of our existence as a nation and what we're about as a nation," said history teacher Janine Scholla. Students will also hear from Civil War re-enactors and a Civil War expert.
