An amateurâ€™s look into Gettysburg past. Dessie Hughes August 2012
High Water Mark Area Pickettâ€™s Charge
Welcome to Gettysburg â€“ late afternoon walk through the Soldiers National Cemeteryâ€Ś. making plans for tomorrow.
Tributes to soldiers past and present everywhere.
‘Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought fourth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal…’
This is near the spot where one of the greatest speeches took place. “The world will little note nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here..” Abraham Lincoln, November 19, 1863.
Statue of Lincoln @ 1 Lincoln Town A first look at the battlefieldâ€Ś
To say it was a ‘skirmish area’ just doesn’t seem right… Needed the band and orchestra at this point with me..
Around every corner.. another monumental place in Gettysburg.
‘The Angle’. This really was cool. It is a 90 degree corner where The Blue and The Grey experienced some of their worst
Out on the battlefield looking up at â€˜The Angleâ€™
Battlefield and cannon.

NewYorkâ€™s French Zouaves. They wore baggy red pants..

A wonderful journey Iâ€™ll never forget and long to visit again.
