Brokaw comment

Very interesting comment from Tom Brokaw just a few minutes ago…

 

He said that when he was born in the 40s, there were people still alive who bore witness to the carnage of Gettysburg and the Civil War.  In what is effectively 2 lifetimes we’ve seen how far history can march.

 

I’ve never looked at it quite like that.  140 years seems like so long ago…  but 2 lifetimes is precisely that—140 years.

 

Interesting.
