What’s The Score

Lincoln Pennies

Mount Lincoln

“Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”

When I was in grade school we had to memorize the Gettysburg Address. (Does anyone do this anymore or is ADD so prevalent no one memorizes) I was amazed and thankful for the brevity of the speech. It was the begin words “Four score and seven years ago” I knew it had to be something about time. Of course I was sent to the dictionary to “Look it up”. Now I suppose I would be told by my teacher “Google it”.

Why the interest in an archaic word.  I’m two days away from my own three score.

That’s the score.
