Aiming At A Distant Past

In between hunt tests last week Karen and I managed to get in some site seeing. One stop that we will definately repeat was Gettysburg. The National Militay Park is huge, covering well over 5,7000 acres and containing 1,000 monuments and cannon and over 40 miles of scenic avenues and drives. You can feel a presence there when you hike through it. Over 51,000 soldiers lost their lives there in one of the nation's bloodiest battles. The picture above is one of the cannons still pointed at some unseen foe.
