Newt Gingrich Will Reenact a Revolutionary War Battle on Twitter


When you’re sitting at home this Sunday afternoon hankering for some historical reenacting but lacking the energy to drive to Buffalo, head over to Newt Gingrich’s Twitter at 4:30 and witness a “Twitternactment” of the Battle of Trenton. Gingrich is putting on this monumental event to mark the release of his novel To Try Men’s Souls. More importantly though, this is NOT the only Twitternactment. There has been a Twitternactment (can’t get enough of that word) of the Battle of Gettysburg and there will be a Twitternactment (there it is again) of Lewis and Clark’s Expedition in November. It’s so cute to watch old people learn about new media. [ via Wonkette]
