Take a trip back to 1855,. The Cushman Family celebrated 235 years in the US. Family members from all corners of the New World gathered in Plymouth Hall in Plymouth Massachusetts. A microcosm of the nation itself, ministers, lawyers, doctors plantation owners, some abolitionist some slave owners, all united by blood but divided.
Over the next days the proceedings were recorded in great detail,. A family once united in faith and love of country are debating the greatest argument of that time, one that resonates today.

You have to dig deep in this pamphlet, go past the first couple of chapters and get to the record of the speeches made at various banquets.
