3rd Day of War at Gettysburg

Sunday, our last full day at Gettysburg before we head to the DC area, we took the last part of the audio tour. It was later in the day as we had rain last night and was drizzly most of the day,

                                                                            The High Water mark refers to the deepest penetration by the Confederate States Army of the Union Army lines during Pickett's Charge of the Battle of Gettysburg during the American Civil War. It is also refers to the location at Cemetary Ridge at Gettysburg.
Home of Abraham Bryan

Abraham Bryan was one of an unique group of farmers who were free black men who also owned property. He left his property during the war and it was occupied by the Union and was almost completely distroyed. He rebuilt it after the war.

Visting the Military Park at Gettysburg was a wonderful experience. This is one of the reasons we travel this country of ours.
We decided to see a different side of Gettysburg and go to the Farnsworth House Inn.  It was built in 1810 and added onto in 1933. There are still 100 bullot holes from the Civil War. It is now a Bed and Breakfast and Restaurant. We both had game pie. It is similiar to a pot pie and included  turkey, pleasant and duck along with mushrooms and wild rice.
All the wait staff wore period custumes. Below are some of pictures below are other buildings in the area.
