Read about the 1913 Gettysburg Reunion at Wikipedia.

I spent a year at Gettysburg College, but given my lack of transportation, spent little time on the battlefields. Later in life, however, I came to get a sense of the power of Lincoln’s words:
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract.
Those fields are a place of deep contemplation and introspection, and I feel the presence there of those who died, North and South, defending what they believed in.
The Old Wolf has spoken.
