Taking into consideration all of the history of warfare, I am sure that I cannot think of an instance of such a vast number of gallant men valiantly dying for such a righteous cause as Pickett's charge at Gettysburg.

I have a question-Do y'all know about the annual Reformation Day event hosted by Providence Church down in Peoria, IL?

So sorry, Andrew, to have forgotten to reply to this comment!

Yes, we are familiar with the Reformation Faire! Every year we had hoped to go, but didn't work out. But it's looking promising for this year! It's a really long drive for us, but I think we may do it this time.

I assume you will be attending?

God bless,
