Your caption for the Gettysburg address and images says "87 years ago." Was there another reunion (after the great combined reunion in 1913) at Gettysburg in 1921?

"I know that this is the beginning of Gettysburg Address, but I don't know what actually it means: Why four score? I guess seven years ago can be calculated and the answer will be-perhaps Declaration of Independence?
Thank you"

Ken Burns is one of those self lothing rich white lberals that make me want to puke.
Everyone of his docs is the same old "White man is evil" BS.

You are kidding right? Another testamonial to our great educational system.
