Take Note: Our Last Interview with “The Colonel,” plus Jeffry Wert on Lincoln’s 2nd Inaugural Speech

Russell-Wert
Col. Gerald Russell and historian Jeffry Wert.

We remember Col. Gerald Russell, a decorated Marine commander and devoted community volunteer. He died February 24, 2014, at age 97. We share our last interview with him from May, 2007. Plus, historian Jeffry Wert on the significance of Abraham Lincoln’s second inaugural address, which he delivered 149 years ago this week. Some say it’s his greatest speech.
