Margaret Thatcher once recorded the Gettysburg Address.

I believe it was very expensive to buy a copy but I found the bit I once heard to be quite amusing, well,she wasn't an actress.

How disappointing to find that nobody has put it on You Tube.

Sharron :-D :-D :-D

Only one person could have ever delivered that speech. And Mrs T falls rather short of his mark - about 14" short, to be precise :-D

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war.........

..........that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Only one person did deliver that speech in its true context: Abraham Lincoln.
