Description

Excerpt from The National Memory: An Address Delivered by George Edgar Vincent, Before the Washington Association of New Jersey We meet to celebrate a great life; to give vitality if may be to a hero, to grasp his meaning for our country. The task may well give us pause. Our thoughts run into conventional molds, our speech into well-worn traditional phrases. For memory merges into habit, and anniversaries take on a ritual of routine. Nevertheless to revive the past, to make it for the moment vivid, to turn old memories into new purposes - such is at once the baffling duty and the high privilege of this hour.
