The David Wills House is located on Lincoln Square in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. It was here Abraham Lincoln spent the night before delivering his Gettysburg Address. Wills was a local lawyer, greatly moved by the fighting and death in his town, who had been appointed by Governor Andrew Gregg Curtin to organize the Soldiers' National Cemetery in Gettysburg to honor the Union dead at the recent Battle of Gettysburg. On November 18, 1863 Abraham Lincoln, in town to appear at the dedication ceremony, arrived at the nearby Gettysburg Station and was taken to Wills' house. There he spent the night and worked on the finishing touches of the Gettysburg Address. The next day the cemetery was dedicated and Lincoln gave his famous speech.
