November 19th is 150th Anniversary of President Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. I recently discovered that Civil War veterans were still alive to be captured on film in 1930s and 40s. My high school principal was old enough to have neighbors who were Civil War vets. Us students would always be shocked by his story because we all think the Civil War was ancient American history! 150 years is not that long ago that our country's fate was shaped. I wish I could go to the Gettysburg Remembrance Parade this week.
Best hymn that was used by both Union and Confederate Armies. Lincoln's campaign in 1864 used this song as well.
