How to Get Your Own Gettysburg Address

Early  in 1864 President Abraham Lincoln was invited to speak at the newly created Soldiers National Cemetary in Gettyburg Pa. Honoring both Union and Confederate troops who had fought in the Battle of Gettysburg.

Former Secretary of State Edward Everett gave a two hour speech to the crowd of approximately 15,000. Then President took to the podium and with a "few appropriate remarks" was able to summarize the war un just ten sentences.

Gettysburg Pa has become a mecca for Civil War enthusiasts and re-enactors alike. The quiet safe neighborhoods of Gettysburg have become a popular place to call home for many from all over the country.

Thanks Kristin, Glenn, I really like these things. They make you really pinpoint your concept into a sharp, short bullet point. They are lots of fun to create as well...

Macomb County Michigan clever and a great segue` into your Branding.  Wonder why present-day Presidents have not learned the "power of the  words spoken--when those words are FEW". Have a great rest of the week.

Good post. Dolores and I have actually considered your area as a retirment location. We likee the Wormald homes at the Links but thought that the area was a bit to remote for day to day activities.


 Life is good!

If I were moving to Gettysburg, you are the man I would be calling, Gerry!  A friend was talking about her visit to Gettysburg the other day and your name popped into my head immediately.  The power of the Rain!

Man Gerry, now I have got to come up with something for Northern Virginia...Hmmm a take off on the old  "Virginia is for Lover's" bumper sticker probably would land us on some un-acceptable web sites. Back to the think tank.
