Gettysburg Day Two

Friday afternoon we took the second part of our audio tour to the National Military Park, which is within a few miles from where we are staying by the way. First Here are some pictures of the horses in our campground

The second day is just as interesting. There are more than 1,400 monuments and and markers that take the place of those fallen soldiers as a reminder to the national of its most trying time in history. And of course it was a place of renewed hope , where President Lincoln gave his famous speech, the Gettysburg Address.

Over 3 million vistors each year come to this hallowed ground to discover what an important part of America's history took place here.
