Just a really cool video including recordings of people telling their account of the civil war. Fascinating and priceless video recordings and stories.

It is just amazing to hear people of the Gilded and Progressive generations even to differences of diction. Figure that ninety years from now people will be amazed to hear the voices, let alone the concerns, of people in the (then) long-extinct GI and Silent generations.

Amazing isn't it? I adore film and camera and even ancient audio recordings primarily because of this. It is the only way to record time, a moment in time that people of later generations can connect to in some way when they never would have had the chance to get to hear their voices, see them alive, and hear what they had to say. It truly is incredible to me.

I notice the elderly Broadway impresario pronouncing the street name with an accent on WAY.

When the last of their generations perished:

Lost -- April 2018
Missionary -- December 30, 1999
Progressive -- 1970
Gilded -- 1955
