Now I am curious....

Over the years how often were you NOT there when it DID  happen?

OK, perhaps one or  another of the professorial types here can finally set 
me straight on which  version of an expression I've used fairly often in the 
past with regard to  Gettysburg is correct:

1.  None of us was there when it  happened.
or
2. None of us were there when it happened.  

I've probably used both interchangably over the years.  I'm  guessing that 
# 2 might be the correct choice, on an "I was" - "We were"  basis, "us" 
being plural, but am willing to stand corrected.  As I said  before, English 
grammar was always somewhat lost on me.
