WASHINGTON (AP) - The Library of Congress plans to display a copy of the Gettysburg Address starting later this month.

The copy is one of five known manuscript drafts of President Abraham Lincoln's famous 1863 address. The copy is believed to be the second draft of the speech, which Lincoln gave to John Hay, one of his two secretaries.

It will be on display in the Library's Thomas Jefferson Building from March 22 to May 4 as part of the "Civil War in America" exhibition.
