Timemachine Thursday: the Address

Today I’m going back to the time machine and back to black and white…seems today in 1863 was a very important day for the mailman. The day of the Gettysburg Address.

After looking for HOURS for a mailman to show me the way to Gettysburg (you think it would be easy, since it’s all about the address. Sheesh.) I finally found a big group of peoples.

I snuck up on stage and had the honor of guarding Mr. Lincoln’s hat. He was the head people, or the 16th pezident of America.

The speech was actually to commemorate a cemetery that had to be built for all the war peoples who died during the battle of Gettysburg. Apparently, Gettysburg already had an address but this was a speech to the peoples.

Apparently, two groups of peoples got into it. So, one group of peoples packed up their toys and headed home. The other group didn’t like this, so the Civil War started. Gettysburg was one of the biggest battles with like 50,000 peoples dying. Humph, sometimes peoples are sooooo stupid!

The speech Mr. Lincoln did was very moving and important. He said:

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”

I don’t think he was talking about football scores, but I have no idea. What’s important is the “all men created equal” part. And while I’m sure he didn’t mean to leave out puppies (cause we’re equal too), I think its something all peoples should remember. Do be haters yo!


  1. If you missed the Gettysburg meeting, you can find Lincoln's PowerPoint at:

  2. Annabelle, thanks for the history lesson! I didn't really know that was are right..people can be stupid! I love the pictures of you and especially you guarding the Presidents hat. You are such a great guard dog! I also love your ability to take us back in time..that's cool!!

  3. Anna, you make a great hatguard - too bad Abe didn't just set it on your head.

    Great history lesson - too many young ones don't know enough about their past history.

    Woos, the OP Pack

  4. Hi Stephen...this is um, a dog blog. Not a place for political ramblings or wordwars. While I don't mind people expressing their opinions, I do ask that peoples type things that would not be considered offensive to others and take into account their thoughts and feelings and not using it for a soapbox for their own beliefs.

    I'd hate to have to make this blog's comments go through an approval process.


  5. Edit to add: That is why I removed your comment. Not to go against what you say, but so any other readers that wander by don't start a word war. Nothing against you or your thoughts, but I want to keep my blog kinda fun and carefree.

  6. Woo are pawmitted to do what woo want on your blog!

    ANYWAY, khome to Pawsylvania and we'll go visit Gettysburg!

    Tank woo fur this furry khool addition/edition to your blog!


  7. Anna, I very much enjoyed the history lesson for today. My mommy told me she had to learn and recite the Gettysburg address when she was just a kid in the 4th grade!! AND, she even to this day remembers alot of it, not all but alot!

  8. Hi Annabelle! That was great! And, glad you got to guard the top hat!

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
    Sierra Rose

  9. Hi Anna,

    Our mom loves history so she loves your Timemachine Thursday posts. She wishes she would have thought of it herself. Cause I'm a dog, I don't think much about the past. It's true dogs live in the moment. I just wanna know when my next meal is! BOL
