Abraham Lincoln Is Still Alive

asked:




President Jimmy Carter tells in his memoirs that a trip to Gettysburg and a discussion about Abraham Lincoln helped achieve a breakthrough in the Camp David negotiations. The Israelis and the Egyptians had reached a deadlock. President Carter suggested that all the participants take a day off and visit Gettysburg, which was just a few miles from Camp David. The ground rules forbade that they discuss the peace talks. Sadat, Begin, and Carter rode together with Carter sitting between the two heads of state. To Carter’s surprise, the military men on both sides knew a great deal about Gettysburg because they had studied the battles in their military schools. Begin was particularly moved to be able to stand in the spot where Lincoln delivered his famous address, a speech that Begin considered “one of the best and simplest speeches ever made.” Barriers began to come down between the two sides, and the next day negotiations resumed that eventually led to the Camp David Accords. (Jimmy Carter, “Keeping Faith. Memoirs of a President,” 1982, pp. 370-372)
