Mom, Annette and Kent are out from Utah! It's so nice to show them around Maryland. So, naturally, we started in Pennsylvania! Gettysburg is one of my favorite places. Annette said the canons reminded her of the ones we had next door to us when we were kids in Poplar, Montana. We were to old to climb on them now, however.
We enjoyed the movie and the Cyclerama presentations at the visitors center (note grandma on the left).
At Little Round Top we met some re-enactors fresh off their weekend at Antietam. It was 150 years since the battle of Antietam. Next year there will be 30,000 soldiers back to re-enact the battle of Gettysburg! It is nice they help keep the memory alive. We're doing our best by learning a little more about it each time we visit!
