Abraham Lincoln

 

 

 

” I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country; corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption in High Places will follow, and the Money Power of the Country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the People, until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the Republic is destroyed. I feel at this moment more anxiety for the safety of my country than ever before, even in the midst of war. “

” A legend . . . in his own mind.

Via CNS News:

“This is what happens at the end of wars,” President Barack Obama said Tuesday when he was asked about swapping American Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for five Taliban terrorists.

“That was true for George Washington, that was true for Abraham Lincoln, that was true for FDR. That’s been true of every combat situation, that at some point, you make sure that you try to get your folks back. And that’s the right thing to do.” “

    It should be obvious after the initial rollout mess that if Obama wants something done right he has to do it himself . I’m sure all that code writing is keeping him very busy and just think , we are already paying him so this is a twofer . With him fixing the site we won’t have to pay hundreds of millions more to his cronies to fix their own screw-ups .

But seriously , what could possibly be a valid reason for ANY sitting president to miss an anniversary of such monumental significance to his own country ?

Ten Thousand People Take Part In Re-Enactment Of Battle Of Gettysburg

 

 

 

” Re-enactors fire the opening volley, starting the commemoration of the Battle of Gettysburg, one of the most violent of the American Civil War.

More than 160,000 men fought at Gettysburg from July 1-3, 1863. Around 8,000 Union and Confederacy soldiers lost their lives over the three days as they fought in and around the Pennsylvania town, with tens of thousands wounded.

The battle is often described as the turning point of the war, when the Union ended Confederate Gen Robert E Lee’s invasion of the north.

Four months later, President Abraham Lincoln honoured the fallen at a cemetery in the town and delivered the Gettysburg Address, in which he redefined the purpose of the war.

While the Blue Gray Alliance re-enactment does not have the same number of soldiers involved as the original battle, everything else is being made as authentic as possible.”

The Girl Who Grew Lincoln’s Beard 

 

 

 

 ” Abraham Lincoln is undoubtedly one of the most easily recognizable people in U.S. history. His height (6’4”), stovepipe hat, and beard made him stand out in a crowd and in the collective American consciousness.

Credit for part of his signature look goes to Grace Greenwood Bedell Billings. In October 1860, the eleven-year-old Bedell saw a campaign photo of Lincoln and was inspired—150 years ago this month—to write to him and urge him to grow a beard to improve his appearance. “
