Touring Gettysburg...

One of our days in Pennsylvania was spent touring Gettysburg.  I am not a "history buff" by any stretch of the imagination, but it does help when I can get the "big picture" of history, especially by being able to see history outside of a textbook.  Here are a few of our sights.

Canons & Battlefields


President Eisenhower's Farm House


The "Alabama" Memorial





Mark even found the Army Corps of Engineers logo in Memorial form...{interesting!}


The Memorial for the Gettysburg Address in the Cemetery


The WWI & WWII tombstones at Gettysburg


The many rows of Civil War graves, marked only by numbers.


Flag of our Fathers


I'm PROUD to be an American...
