World Record Lincoln Farewell Address

Hi fellow home educators. I received another letter from the Fort but this time regarding a Lincoln's farewell world record reading. I thought I'd pass the info on and let you decide what you all want to do.

Hope to see you and your group this weekend at Fort Scott National Historic Site.
For your (and the home school group) information, we are also participating in the world record

for simultaneous reading at 11:00am on Friday, February 11 by reading Abraham Lincoln's Farewell Address as he departed Springfield IL for Washington DC and his inauguration as president.
More information can be found at:
If your group cannot come back to Fort Scott NHS to participate with us, you can organize your own group reading to help try to break the world record.  All the information you need is at the website.
But if you can join us on Feb 11, please plan to arrive by 10:45am for last minute instructions.
Again, look forward to seeing you this weekend!
