Kent Masterson Brown To Keynote The 151st Anniversary Of The Gettysburg Address, Nov. 19 At The National Cemetery In Gettysburg

Kent Brown explains his topic below.

Kent recently sent me a copy of his latest project, a documentary about Daniel Boone. I've mentioned it before. I plan to watch it very soon and post a full review. More here.

I found this from the article linked above rather interesting:
Then-U.S. Sen. Jim Webb, D-Va., objected to a medal for Cushing because no Confederate soldier had been honored, although they would be ineligible anyway. Webb retired in 2012, a Pentagon review confirmed Cushing's heroism, and Cushing's honor was placed into the 2014 defense authorization bill.
While I'm glad former Senator Webb stands up for the memory and bravery of the Confederate soldier, that is a separate issue and should not have delayed Cushing's honor.
