    Gettysburg visit pics

    I'm sure thousands of Gettysburg pictures are on here but since I'm new I figured I would share a few of mine. Me and my son took a private guided bicycle tour, I highly recommend it even though it was 100 degrees the day we went! Thanks for looking!

    Analyzing Lee's Messages During the Campaign
