Everett included Lincoln’s speech and a “Map of the Grounds and Design for the Improvement of the Soldiers’ National Cemetery” with his own “Gettysburg address.” Noted landscape architect, botanist, and horticulturist, William Saunders, was hired by David Wills to design the Soldiers’ National Cemetery in Gettysburg. Laid out over 17 acres of land that had been part of the battlefield, his design called for a central monument (completed in 1869) around which the grave sites were arranged state by state in great semi-circles that provided for equal placement of the dead.
