“History is a set of lies agreed upon.” The Dude
We don't have any ability to understand what it was like to deal with the carnage that went on during those few years. It's important to understand that the most destructive events we ever experienced were brought about by mistakes of domestic policy.
It is a great speech.
Obama won't be attending the 150th anniversary. He's busy working on taking over WalMart so that it's more accessible and cheaper and other stuff like that.
Obama decided to pass on Gettysburg because he was so busy using his database genius awesome skills fixing healthcare.gov.Translation: Too many white people in Gettysburg.
He would take umbrage with those who claimed that Lincoln wrote this in about an hour on the train to Gettysburg.Wouldn't a walking tour through the battlefield with Prof. Pinsker be just about the best way one could spend a day or two?
Maybe the exclusion of black soldiers at Gettysburg explains Obama's snubbing of the centennial?
sesquicentennial, not centennial.
He also seems like the kind of guy who would buy the beers afterward.
The world will little note nor long remember what I say here.Such is my life.
I'm sure President Precious Peacock Obama celebrated the 54th Massachusetts's attack on Fort Wagner where 116 enlisted men died.Oh, wait ...
The historian does go on to say that subsequently black revolutionary war soldiers were buried there.The cemetery is not segregated.
That historian does a great job in that video. I assume he was reading that, but if not, he's a very impressive teacher.
Wouldn't a walking tour through the battlefield with Prof. Pinsker be just about the best way one could spend a day or two? The world will little note nor long remember what I say here.Bagoh20, even I didn't think it would happen this fast.
Ha John. Great men are often not noticed in their time. You are in good company.
It's the same reason Choom doesn't observe anybody else's achievements.He has none and even he sees that when he has to stand in anyone else's shadow.PS He even had to omit "under God" when asked to recite the Gettysburg Address. He's like a kid that has to put his mark on everything.
