      There are five known original copies of the Gettysburg Address. In the 1990s, Arlen Specter wrote this President’s Chief of Staff requesting that the White House loan its copy of the famous speech to the Gettysburg Museum in Specter’s home state of Pennsylvania. Find Specter’s letter and you’ll find your next clue.
