158 years ago today....When General Buford entered Gettysburg on June 30th, 1863, he was confronted by locals who informed him Confederates had been spotted west and north of town. The General immediately rushed his troopers along with six cannon through town to set up defensive positions on the ridges west of town. Mort Kunstler captured the moment as the troopers urgently rushed passed the Adams County Courthouse in his print, "Rendezvous with Destiny". You can almost hear the horses' hooves thundering down Baltimore Street! Below is the print along with a similar modern perspective from google earth.
