History of the Gettysburg Address

Time for another Mayor Gia Story!  Well, since it was President’s Day on Monday, I thought it might be fun to re-imagine a conversation with Abe and Mary. 


Yep, it's Civil War style Boyfriend and Gia.



















Yep, that's pretty much how it happened. But if you're a teacher or parent, I wouldn't start telling your kids about this version. It's...uh...too controversial. Yeah, that's it. Controversial.

  1. Should I not tell the kids because I don't want to give them the impression that Mary Todd Lincoln was insightful while being mentally imbalanced and dressing like Pretty Pretty Princess? Also because if I were telling kids it would be because I was approaching strange children on the street?

    1. Yes. Exactly. That part is between us adults, who may or may not adore pretty pretty princesses.

  5. As a man who stayed away during my high school A.P. U.S. History course, I can say with all the authority that experience has endowed* me with that Lincoln wrote that speech on the train on his way to Gettysburg.

    Also, I always get a kick out of the fact that the Gettysburg Address includes the line "The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here".

    *hehe, endowed

  6. Yeah, my history says Abe wrote it while riding on a train, too. On the back of an envelope or some such. The part about Mary talking to an alligator though? Totally accurate.

  7. I think I like blagging WAY better than blogging. Blogging has always sounded to me like you're coughing up something putrescent and nasty.

  8. We owe so much to alligators, and here we are still living in fear of them. And making tacky cowboy boots out of them.
