On February 27, 2014 WYES challenged students from Xavier University of Louisiana to participate in reciting the Gettysburg Address.

This national project was inspired by Ken Burns' latest film, THE ADDRESS, a 90-minute feature length documentary airing on WYES-TV/Channel 12 on April 15 at 8pm.

The film tells the story of a tiny school in Putney Vermont, the Greenwood School, where each year the students are encouraged to practice, memorize, and recite the Gettysburg Address. In its exploration of the Greenwood School, the film also unlocks the history, context and importance of President Lincoln's most powerful address.
