Gettysburg

Since I have Spring Fever break this Thursday/Friday, we took a trip to Gettysburg today. Jason had been once about six years ago, and I had been once in 2005. It started out as a drizzly day, but about the time that we finished looking around in the visitors center and museum, the rain stopped, so we had a beautiful day for sightseeing.There was lots of beautiful scenery.

Jason. . . posing for me without complaint



I like this picture better than the first, though.



There were many amazing sculptures.



Fences like this run throughout the battlefields.

Ready. Aim. . .



Fire!



The Pennsylvania monument

Throughout the day I kept wondering, "Do we really understand the magnitude of the battles that were fought for freedom?" I hope and pray that I will never take the sacrifices of our nations patriots for granted!
