Imagine my mortification and astonishment to hear–for the first time–that 50,000 men died at Gettysburg (on one field, no less!). All of this time I’ve been laboring under the delusion that a paltry 7,000 died there…
I just don’t think that the team would have come together if coach Boone had drawn a distinction between dead and wounded.
Wise words for us to inspire to live by! A great Football Movie.
Rest well ye souls that wore the Blue and the Gray we remember you each and every day.
RIP Brave Warriors!
I’m sure we’ll be hearing plenty about Gettysburg this weekend. How about something on Vicksburg? 🙂 Equally important?
