The Gettysburg Address got bad press?!

What came to be termed The Gettysburg Address received poor press at the time.

Here is what The Chicago Times had to say: 'The cheek of every American must tingle with shame as he reads the silly, flat, and dish-watery utterances of the man who has to be pointed out to intelligent foreigners as the President of the United States.'

There is no accounting for taste.
