Photo of the Week: November 18, 2015

Tomorrow is the 152nd anniversary of the Gettysburg Address, which was given by President Lincoln on the afternoon of November 19, 1863. Interestingly, after the speech he boarded a train for the fairly short trip back to Washington. While on the train, he was stricken with Typhoid Fever, nearly passing out, and was secreted back to the White House, while his aides scrambled for an explanation of his illness  while at the same time, hiding what it really was; it became a state secret.

There you are, a little trivia at no extra charge!
