"History is a living horse laughing at a wooden horse. History is a wind blowing where it listeth. History is no sure thing to bet on. History is a box of tricks with a lost key. History is a labyrinth of doors with sliding panels, a book of ciphers with the code in a cave of the Saragossa sea. History says, if it pleases, Excuse me, I beg your pardon, it will never happen again if I can help it."

—Carl Sandburg (1878-1967) American writer known for free verse, Smoke and Steel

2013 is the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg and President Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. In celebration of this momentous occasion, the Town of Vail Public Library will be hosting an exciting lecture and discussion on November 19 at 5:30 p.m. given by Bernadette Richardson. The presentation will be centered around Lincoln’s speech at Gettysburg, November 19, 1863, with highlights of what was happening at that time during the Civil War. The battle of Gettysburg (July 1863) was a turning point for the Union and that will be discussed, as well.
