Justice Frank J. and Virginia Williams
This typed transcript relays Zachary Shuler's recollections of how he came to be present at the Gettysburg address, what the crowd was like there, and what he recalls of the speech, itself. Shuler admits that he, at fifteen years old, was too young to comprehend the importance of the speech at the time.
