On the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address
272 words. The thing I remember most about the Gettysburg Address is that I couldn’t remember all of it, as I stood before the rest of my pack, and our parents, during some event or other somewhere well back in my dark and misty past. I have recovered from my shame, but the memory remains as one of a few which immediately rise upon reflection. Just one of those things of personal import that no one else cares about. I suppose we all have a few of those little morsels of memory stowed away.
That recollection returned once again as I came upon this article from the Tribune recently. Those of my readers who reside near my old Adams-York County stomping grounds will find many familiar references to the locale. If you’re close by, it’s a good trip to make.
