Well, we had the opportunity to do a bit of a history tour this summer. Our first stop was Gettysburg, and we thougoughly enjoyed seeing and understanding the things that went on there.
The battlefield on Weatfield Drive (right across from the famous peach orchard)
The painting of the battlefield in the museaum's Cyclorama, done by a french artist a few years after the battle. It was 42 feet tall, and 360 degrees around. Pretty cool!
One of the monuments out on the battlefield
The kids and Nels sitting with Abe Lincoln in front of the museum
Nicolas couldn't get over how cool everything was, especially these authenic cannon balls (he posed with a surprised face for almost every picture throughout our entire trip)
