For those of you tuning in for my regular Wordless Wednesday post...surprise. Today, Goody Two Shoes and myself took off for Gettysburg for the 145th commencement of President Lincoln's Gettysburg Address...the most stirring words ever written and spoken by any American President.
The cemetery was standing room only...and frigid.
This is about the time Goody Two Shoes was losing feeling in her feet.
I was fine as long as I kept moving.
Robert E. Lee, from his latter days as President of Washington College, came.
Academy Award nominated documentary film maker, Ken Burns gave the keynote address.
Burns spoke for about twenty minutes, quoting Lincoln many times, as well as his own work on the Civil War.
