Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

100_0086

Gettysburg is a really amazing place to visit; they are working to restore the battlefield to look exactly as it did on back in 1863. They have a long way to go, but much of the unsightly crap that cluttered the battlefield (which is huge) has been swept away by the Park Service. It’s interesting; they actually have the ability to go onto private property to remove stuff that is scarring the battlefield–most famously, the huge observation tower that was imploded a few years back.













Gettysburg is near Amish country, which is a lot of fun to visit as well.

    Are they going to remove all the monuments erected by the different states all over the battlefield, too?

    No, that would be political suicide. They have become historic in their own right now, as well.
