Old Kentucky Tales S6, Ep10: A Behind the Scenes Tour of the Gettysburg Address


Jason and Brent look back at the much revered Gettysburg Address through the eyes of someone present with President Lincoln that day, Congressman Edward McPherson.  His account details the moments leading up to the speech, how the crowd reacted at the time and just how Lincoln went about preparing his remarks.  And they take a look at specific fans-of-the-show comments so keep those comments coming!  The Fake History Sponsors are the World War I Trophy Train and the 1956 Ford Station Wagon.  Share comments here or on the Apple Podcasts app, iTunes or NPROne.  Old Kentucky Tales is produced by sound engineer Todd Birdsong at WKCTC's Paducah School of Art and Design.
