Founded in 1938...

We commemorate Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address by co-sponsoring the annual Dedication Day event on November 19th at Soldiers' National Cemetery.

We honor the more than 3,500 Union soldiers buried in Soldiers' National Cemetery whose sacrifice Lincoln’s 1863 address so eloquently exalted through our annual, summertime “100 Nights of Taps” program.

We educate Fellowship members, citizens of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the United States of America on Lincoln’s legacy, as well as on the Gettysburg Address and its impact on all peoples not only through our annual Dedication Day events, but also through co-sponsorship of Gettysburg National Military Park’s Traveling Trunk Program.

We promote awareness about Lincoln’s role in Gettysburg’s history and his enduring legacy by maintaining the “Return Visit” statue in Lincoln Square.

In Memory of Jim Getty

Jim served as President Abraham Lincoln for the annual Dedication Day Ceremonies for many, many years (30+ years) and we still grieve his 2015 passing.  We salute and honor Jim for his years of service to the community and across the country--to many of us he WAS Abraham Lincoln. We will miss you Jim, but will never forget you.  Read more about Jim's legacy.
