(Gettysburg) -- Thousands of people are heading to Gettysburg to commemorate a speech that for 150 years has been a source of national identity.
The keynote speakers for the Gettysburg Address anniversary tomorrow at the Soldiers' National Cemetery in the Gettysburg National Military Park are U. S. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell and James McPherson, a leading Civil War scholar.
Governor Corbett will also deliver remarks.
The main event is the reading of President Abraham Lincoln's speech, first delivered in Gettysburg several months after the three-day battle in 1863 that left tens of thousands of men wounded, dead or missing.
The Dedication Day event is held annually at the cemetery.
Last year's commemoration drew some 9,000 people.
