Learn the Address | Jerry Seinfeld and Louis C.K. | PBS
Jerry Seinfeld and Louis C.K. recite the Gettysburg Address. Join PBS and Ken Burns by sharing your Gettysburg Address online at http://www.learntheaddress.org.
The inspiration for this project is the tiny Greenwood School in the small town of Putney, Vermont. The school’s students, boys ages 11-17, all face a range of learning differences that have made their personal, academic and social progress extremely challenging. Yet each year they are encouraged to practice, memorize, and recite the Gettysburg Address.
The Greenwood School is the focus of Ken Burns’s next film, THE ADDRESS, which will air on PBS April 15, 2014.
