I was just informed by a friend that the Bill Bennett Show
read my Memorial Day Speech from 2004
. I gave my talk at the Ashland Cemetery. He said it was good. I thank him for his kindness. But since he mentioned good speeches, let me bring this 1884 memorial Day Speech by Oliver Wendell Holmes
to your attention. He gave it in Keene, NH, in a white painted town hall on the village common.
