Gettysburg - Lutheran Seminary (ca. 2006)

Gettysburg National Military Park


A quick half-day tour of the battlefield I took near Thanksgiving. I can't really describe the feelings I had as I wandered over this sacred ground. The pictures are in chronological order according to the events of the battle. At the end are a few pics of the Gettysburg National Cemetery, established after the battle, and the site of the famous address by President Lincoln...
