If you've never visited the battle site - it's a must do as an American. In fact, I took the opportunity to run from downtown to the battlefield, making my way around the entire perimeter of the field traversing both the Union and Confederate sides. It's a somber place - to say the very least. Though it looks like this today - history holds a much more gruesome detail.
I hope my generation is able to sustain, build, and appreciate such wonderful places.
Thank you Gettysburg - a great trip indeed - and I'm even more proud to be an American after visiting your fine city streets.
