Memorial Day, Where It Started


The first, somber holiday of the summer begins next weekend. Memorial Day. 25 years ago I took a One Tank Trip to our nation’s capitol to show the sights to my then 10 year old son, Craig. Our videographer was Bob Wilkinson. On the way we stopped at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. It was this horrible battle in the Civil War that contributed greatly to the day we now mark as “Memorial Day”. A day that sometimes gets lost in the picnics and parties that now seem to be the norm for this most somber of holidays. Join us this week for another Classic One Tank Trip as we revisit the place where Abraham Lincoln made his immortal speech, The Gettysburg Address.
