Earlier this month, the Library of Congress paired with Levenger to produce a new edition of Long Remembered: Lincoln and his Five Versions of the Gettysburg Address. It has long been held that Abraham Lincoln wrote at least five drafts of his famous address, differing in word choice, punctuation, and structure. Two of the five versions of the famous speech—the John G. Nicolay copy and the John Hay copy—are housed at the LOC (in a low-temperature vault). The other three are the Everett-Keyes copy at the Illinois State Historical Library, the Bancroft copy at the Cornell University Library, and the Bliss copy, which lives at the White House. Back in 1963, the LOC produced a black-and-white facsimile of the five versions of the address to commemorate the Gettysburg centennial. This new edition is a full-color, full-size facsimile with unbound facsimiles stored in a back pocket.
