Edward Everett (1794-1865) was one of the greatest orators of the Civil War era. He served as a U.S. Senator, U.S. Representative, Governor of Massachusetts, U.S. Secretary of State and President of Harvard University.

He is mostly remembered today as the featured orator for the dedication of the National Cemetery at Gettysburg in 1863 where he spoke for over two hours- immediately before President Lincoln delivered his famous two minute Gettysburg Address.  [sl] [ph:sl]
