GETTYSBURG ADDRESS WORD PUZZLE

I'm pretty familiar with that subject [I wrote a Battle of Gettysburg w.p. previously] , and live within 30 miles of Gettysburg.
I enjoyed solving it and learned a few new trivia facts along the way.
Coincidentally, I'll be joining fellow alumni from York College of PA on a Civil War Tour in Gettysburg this Saturday, November 7.

If I "impress" the group and professor who will conduct the tour with my knowledge, you'll know where that comes from-----
Sploofus!

Kudos to the "Abraham" Lynken team?

Geez, Al, pretty soon you'll be telling us the Union soldiers prevailed because of the York Peppermint Patties provided by Lincoln.

It sure wasn't the Spam and hardtack that foisted them to victory.
I'll have to research that peppermint pattie claim. Might be something to it!

Any WP that helps me learn is good news.
I've always been a huge fan of Lincoln and I dont think I've ever read a better speechwriter.

Team of Rivals about Lincoln and his cabinet is an excellent read. Gives a lot of insight to Lincoln and how he managed opposing positions.

Needless to say, the title chose the subject and wrote the puzzle. I've hopefully got at least one more collaboration (with another author) in the works in which the combination of names generates the title. Stay tuned.

And if anyone else wants to see what titles our names can generate, let me know.

I thought this one was tremendous. Very interesting and very fair. I have a small complaint about the choice of words on one of them, but that's only further proof that I'd like every WP written exactly the way I would write it.
