150 Year Anniversary of the Gettysburg Address

Granville and Eliza Jane Hansford
















 As you may know, I'm a bit of a history buff so I couldn't let this date pass without pointing out.....

On Nov. 19, 1863 Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address. This is the 150 year anniversary of the event. His 2 minute speech is one of the most famous in American History. Listen to it here. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gettysburg_Address

I included a picture of one of an ancestor that fought in the Civil War.  My 3 times  great grandfather Granville Hansford. He was in the Sixth Regiment of Kansas Cavalry at Fort Scott Kansas.
