Obama Leaves ‘Under God’ Out of Gettysburg Address


Filmmaker Ken Burns, as part of a documentary, has filmed all the living presidents and several other celebrities reciting the Gettysburg Address, which was given by President Lincoln 150 years ago.

Anniversary celebrations at the Soldiers National Cemetery in Gettysburg are expected to attract dignitaries, celebrities and history enthusiasts.
