Trip To the Battlefields

My wife and I spent a quick weekend at Gettysburg this weekend. It's been several years since I visited Gettysburg, and photography wasn't the main reason for going, but I did snap a few pictures while there.

Great pictures. Thanks for sharing. I have been there several times, the last a couple of years ago. Took some of the same pictures you did. They tell several ghost stories about the battlefield. Near one of the monuments at the top of Little Roundtop our pet sheltie who never barked in those days start barking non stop. Don't know if her back ground is Yankee or Rebel?

Not trying to hijack your post here but I plan a trip to the battlefield this summer and will be taking a copy of Wm. Frazanito's "Gettysburg, Then and Now" as reference support.
Your pics are very well composed and have given me a boost toward finalizing my trip arrangements.




Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

They are nice pics. I've gone yearly for the last several with my sons. I've never been in the Shriver house, but will now. Headed out next weekend, but plan on doing more Antietam and Harper's Ferry this time.

Very nice, It's been a long time since I went to Gettysburg. Wife and I stopped at Antietam a year or two ago while on our way home from DC. Also happened across a small skirmish site a few years ago while traveling through VA or WV in the mountains, I forget the name of it now.
