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...
