    My eighth grade teacher had a playful sense of humor. He gave us, in the Fall of my eigth grade year, (I was eleven at the time), five minutes to memorize Henry’s seditious speech. I thought he meant it. I did. I know you probably won’t believe it, but it is true! (Not that I still possess eidetic imagery!)
