Spielberg announced as featured speaker for Gettysburg's Dedication Day

Director Steven Spielberg will be this year's keynote speaker during Dedication Day ceremonies Nov. 19 in Gettysburg, Pa.

The ceremony, held at the Soldiers' National Cemetery in Gettysburg, will mark the 149th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address.

Spielberg's visit will coincide with the release of his film "Lincoln," written by Pulitzer Prize winner Tony Kushner. The film stars Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, David Strathairn, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tommy Lee Jones. It focuses on Lincoln's final months in office.

Dedication Day will feature a wreath-laying ceremony at the Soldiers' National Monument. The Dedication Day ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. at the rostrum, where Spielberg will deliver the keynote address.

The event is free and open to the public. Seating will be limited. Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs.
