Memoral Day Speech by Vice-President Lyndon Baines Johnson at Gettysburg on May 30, 1963
#1
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/26/sunday...ml?hp&_r=0

The text of the article in the New York Times commemorates this speech 50 years ago, and contains an audio script of the speech itself.

It may be found right below a picture of LBJ on the left side of the page. The audio lasts 10:10 minutes.

Ths speech was delivered one year before the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and 100 years after Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg address.
