History In Methuen Today

Today in Methuen, they had a Civil War Reenactment.  Here's me and Alexis hanging out with President Lincoln.
Then me, Alexis, President Lincoln and Jessica. 
Jessica is staring at Ulysses S. Grant discussing the types of horses used in the War.

Here's Ulysses S. Grant giving his speech.  
I won't say much to comment but for some of you who read this blog - you're aware that I'm from a different side of the Civil War.  So it's definitely interesting to hear about people who traveled away from their homes to defend the United States vs those you actually stayed home to defend their states. 
It was a great historical day - this was set up to recognize the 150th Anniversary of the Gettysburg Address.
