On Thursday, Nov. 19, USCIS will naturalize 16 new citizens during a special ceremony commemorating the 152nd anniversary of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. Garrison Keillor, host and creator of A Prairie Home Companion, a weekly radio program heard nation-wide on over 600 Public Radio stations, will present the Dedication Day keynote address during the ceremony at Gettysburg National Military Park in Gettysburg, Pa. Lincoln portrayer George Buss will recite the Gettysburg Address.

USCIS wishes to thank Gettysburg National Military Park, Gettysburg College, Gettysburg Foundation and Lincoln Fellowship of Pennsylvania for making this naturalization ceremony possible. USCIS has a long standing partnership with the National Park Service that encourages both agencies to co-host naturalization ceremonies in historically significant locations like Gettysburg set aside for public enjoyment and historical commemoration.
