Experience The Odyssey

The Journals of Alec Windle; Storyteller, Journalist and Speaker


William Seward (Secretary of State under Lincoln) is quickly becoming one of my favorite people. I admire people that stuck to their guns in the middle of crisis. An emotional man who always had a purpose, and didn’t care who was in the way. #williamseward #teamofrivals #newyork #secretaryofstate #civilwar #baddude

November 19, 1863: Lincoln Delivers Gettysburg Address
150 years ago today, President Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address at the dedication of the National Cemetery in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Considered one of the most memorable speeches in American history, the 272-word address reflected Lincoln’s redefined conviction that the Civil War was a fight not only to maintain the Union but also emphasize the struggle for liberty and equality for all.
The Battle of Gettysburg marked a turning point in the Civil War as the bloodiest battle and the South’s defeat under General Robert E. Lee, leading to the Confederate army’s ultimate decline.
Commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address with Ken Burns’ “The Address” site to discover a national campaign that encourages every American to learn, recite, and record the address.

October 29, 1929: Stock Market Crashes
On this day in 1929, the New York Stock Exchange market collapsed and signaled the onset of the Great Depression (1929-39). Stock prices began to plummet in early September, triggering panic on Wall Street, after a steady decline since the market’s peak in August. 
By 1932, it was reported that stocks were only worth about 20 percent of their value compared to the summer of 1929.
