Remembrance Weekend in Gettysburg

Better late than never. Here's some pictures from the parade and luminaries at Gettysburg this past November. The weekend closest to the 19th of November, they rededicate the National Cemetery and hold a big parade. At night they place a luminary and flag on every grave. That was very moving. They read the roll of the burials (including hundreds of anonymous) and there are honor guards from every branch of the service at the entrance to the cemetery.
