Academy-Award winning director Steven Spielberg will deliver the keynote address at a ceremony to mark the 149th anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln's "Gettysburg Address." Spielberg's remarks will come days after the release of his new film "Lincoln". Daniel Day-Lewis has the title role. Gettysburg is the site of a pivotal battle of the Civil War where the North turned back troops from the Confederate army. Lincoln's remarks that dedicated the Soldiers National Cemetery at Gettysburg are considered one of the best speeches from a President in American history.
