"Lincoln " Director Spielberg Speaks in Gettysburg-- Part 1

From the Nov.20, 2012, Hagerstown Herald-Mail, AP.

Steven Spielberg expressed humility Monday as he delivered the keynote address at cereminies marking the 149th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's famous Gettysburg Address.  "I've never stood anyplace on earth where it's easier to be humbled than here."

Spielberg, of course, has just released his biopic on the man who led the country in one of its direst moments.  His address is commemorated annually on Nov. 19th, the date in 1863 he gave the speech. at the Soldier's National Cemetery in Gettysburg, near the actual site, four months after the battle that turned the tide of the Civil War when Robert E. lee's final invasion of the North was turned back.

The first one was at Antietam which I visited earlier this month.

More to Come.  --Old Secesh
