    The long day of driving included several encounters with slowed traffic and construction. We finally arrived in Gettysburg. We decided to drive through town to see what eating establishments were still open - trying to avoid the quick burger & fries menu. We ended up in the park and decided to go see the Eternal Flame. We'll be visiting the site again tomorrow, but wanted to get some pictures of the flame in the twilight / dusk. ...

    ... tour and remembered it. It wasn’t the same tour as today. A man at the Museum told me that ride ended in 1973. We stood in line and took the tour…and boy was I disappointed.

    ... with snow all around and a chilly wind blowing through. A good spot for a video clip, with I figure I'll tag onto my next town down the road, which I think will be Fairfield.

    My fingers are going to go numb pretty quickly, but I figure I should be able to get through a quick parkbench concert--including a couple songs that I think Dan should like, like my 2009 song "Beginning of Industry" and my anthem songs "It Means Nothing" and "Reciprocal"... And soon we have ...

    ... lines, sending the defenders retreating through the streets of town to the hills just to the south.

    On the second day of battle, most of both armies had assembled. The Union line was laid out in a defensive formation resembling a fishhook. In the late afternoon of July 2, Lee launched a heavy assault on the Union left flank, and fierce fighting raged at Little Round Top, the Wheatfield, Devils Den, and the Peach Orc******** the Union ...
