Pic of the Week: On the Battlefields at Gettysburg
This year, Gettysburg celebrates the 150th anniversary. Through 4th of July weekend and the week after, many volunteers are participating in battle reenactments as well as recreating living exhibits of what every aspect of life was like in Gettysburg during the Civil War. I've been to Gettysburg, PA many times. I've seen the battlefields, monuments, Soldier's National Cemetery, and the Visitor's Center Museum. Each time I go, I notice a new detail - a statue I didn't notice before or a fence I never quite appreciated. The last time I went, I couldn't stop staring at the criss-crossed rail fencing that outlines the old battlefields where the Civil War played out in Gettysburg. These simple wooden fences hold so much meaning, as they literally outline history. You can see more of my Gettysburg travel photos here.
