President Obama asked to recite ‘Nicolay version’ of Gettysburg Address which omits ‘under God’

The Learn the Address website, run by Ken Burns, has taken responsibility for President Obama’s recitation of the Gettysburg Address which omitted the phrase ‘under God.’

The Blaze details how the website learntheaddress.org has updated their site removing blame from the President.

“There are five versions of the Gettysburg Address. We asked President Obama to read the first, the ‘Nicolay Version’,” the site now says.

The notes that there are several versions (up to 10) of the address. Some of them do not include the phrase “under God.” However, the commonly accepted Associated Press version does include it.

“The inclusion of God in the speech is perhaps the most significant difference among the versions,” the National Constitution Center says. “The fifth version of the speech, which was signed and dated by Lincoln, was considered the ‘final’ version and included ‘under God’ in its last sentence.”

The President was targeted briefly for “removing God” from the speech as the video went viral across the Internet falsely attacking the President.
