Kent Courtney Performs at American Honors History Weekend

Today's the day of the America Honors History Breakfast at the 1863 Inn of Gettysburg.  That's the former Holiday Inn.  I'll be performing there at 9am and it runs until 11am.  They'll be kicking off the promotion of the annual Gettysburg Reenactment today, also.  Thank you WGET for interviewing me on Thursday and Friday of this week.  Fred Snyder first had me on his morning radio show back about 1997.  WGET has been very good to me every since.
