1. Lincoln's Handwritten Speech. After giving the speech and the train was on its way, Lincoln attempted to write out his parting speech. The train's jolting motion prevented him from finishing it so he handed the note pad to John Nicolay, his secretary, who then finished writing as Lincoln finished dictating the speech.
