Do not be deceived.  It got really cold up there.  I stood outdoors in -7F & -11F temperatures.

Gettysburg: Where the guns are forever silent.

                                               The most historic battlefield in the United States
                                           is now an expansive field of peace and contemplation.
                                       You can actually take a perceptive on life and re-evaluate
                                          your priorities as you walk throughout the battlefield.
51,000 Americans died here in three days.  58,000 died in Vietnam in nine years.

The feeling of peace was tremendous, on a background of serious reflection.

A farmer literally came out of his house and joined in the battle.

Having your horse shot out from under you was par for the course.

Union artillery would target one row of Confederate canons and fire away, until
they were out of action.  Then, Union guns would target another row, systematically
decimating Confederate artillery units.

Barns and large houses would suddenly become hospitals.

This was before the implementation of barbed wire and razor wire.

Capturing an enemy flag was a major accomplishment.

A historic battlefield becomes an even more historic cemetery.


The town of Gettysburg, itself.

The town has not been modernized.
