Lest We Forget
The Battle of Gettysburg, July 1-3, 1863, was, as we know, the pivotal battle of the civil war when the south made it all the way up to Pennsylvania. This most horrific of battles was fought bravely by both sides and has been memorialized through formal history as well as private conversation from that time to the present day.
The north proved the victors and President Abraham Lincoln traved to the battle site on November 19, 1863 to commemorate the loss of those noble ones from both sides.

November 19, 2013 marks the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. As we reflect on this battle and the bravery of those who fought, no doubt some of us, if we listen hard enough, will be able to hear those Rebel yells.
May God bless the United States of America.
