Better late than never
HARRISBURG, PENNSYLVANIA- A newspaper in Pennsylvania says it got it wrong 150-years ago and offered an apology for calling President Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address "silly remarks" that deserved a "veil of oblivion."
The Patriot-news of Harrisburg retracted its dismissive editorial that was written by its Civil War-era predecessor, The Harrisburg Patriot and Union.
The address is considered one of America's best oratories.
The paper says it "regrets the error" of not treating the speech in 1863 as "momentous importance, timeless eloquence and lasting significance."
There's a ceremony to mark the anniversary of the eight-minute speech at Gettysburg on Tuesday.
