This is the anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, not the anniversary of Lincoln's address. But it seems fitting to commemorate both by displaying the text of the Gettysburg Address, translated into Hebrew. (There was a Library of Congress exhibition, but unfortunately the translation into Hebrew and other languages is no longer at the LOC website.)

UPDATE (7/4): I asked David Boxenhorn of Rishon Rishon what he thought of this translation, and he was unenthusiastic. He came up with one that he likes much more, which he's posted here.
