Fifth and final handwritten copy of the address. The copy of the Gettysburg address displayed in the Lincoln Bedroom is one of five copies President Lincoln wrote out in his own hand and the only one he titled, signed, and dated. The first two copies( now in the Library of Congress) were written for his secretaries Nicolay and Hay. The remaining three were done to raise funds for Civil War soldiers. The White House copy was auctioned at a "Sanitary Fair" in Baltimore in 1864.
