    civilwargal got a reaction from Walt's Daughter in Ranger walks at Gettysburg   
    I fortunately I can't copy and paste on the kindle, but go to You Tube and type Gettysburg nps. It also brought up some other battlefield walks. Also look at Gettysburg Remembrance parade. Every year in the closest Saturdays there is a big parade with hundreds of reenactors.

    Good to see my old stomping grounds of Chancelorsville. Last time I was there we had a tour of the "house"(it's actually the farm office) where Jackson died. We were there at night by lantern light. Kind of took you back in time. My favorite tour was tracing the Booth escape rte.

    civilwargal got a reaction from Walt's Daughter in Gettysburg Address   
    A week from today 11/19 will be the 100th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address. This is a nice op ed piece written by Ken Burns. I have been at the re-dedication of the Cemetary on several occasions and it is very moving to see hundreds of people in Civli War attire on the Battlefield visiting the monuments of the units that they re enact.
