Taking the pictures at dusk really adds to the somberness of Gettysburg. Beautiful!

If you are going to Gettysberg, I highly recommend also seeing the Anteitam battlefield. It is about an hour's drive away, and well worth the trip. I would probably do Anteitam first as it the battle there was about a year earlier in the war.

Thanks for the tip, Jonathan. Another interesting stop is to President Eisenhower's home, which adjoins Gettysburg. Like stepping back into the era of MadMen.

Marvellous piece of history and such a great photo blog to accompany it. Your camera work certainly gives us a taste of the original battle. The end of another tyrant who wanted world domination. Worthy of an entry in any glossy magazine Mac.

While on a trip to London we had to stop and check out Trafalgar Square. It was really amazing, even though it was cold and we got rained on quite a bit.
