    Please help my reading.

    Hi..

    Please read the following sentence.

    I don't understand what "the dedication" means in this context..

    Abraham Lincoln's most famous speech, the Gettysburg Address, was delivered during the Civil War at the dedication of the Soldiers' National Cemetery in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, in 1863.

    Thank You.

    The Gettysburg Address was given at the ceremony in which the National Cemetery was in effect given to the nation - it was ceremonially assigned to the USA for the burial of men (and now women) whose military service was notable.
