Goooooooood morning World,

Well, it’s a beautiful morning in south central PA.  I am amazed at how gorgeous the morning is.  I awoke at 4:30 this morning, so I finished up the dinner dishes from last night and put them away.  Yesterday I had the privilege of giving a tour of Gettysburg to some friends who had traveled from Massachusetts.  Among them was a gentleman who was 82 years young.  He kept me busy just keeping up with him.  I was told at the end of the day that everyone enjoyed themselves and everyone had a good time.  I don’t know why, but I worry about that.  We visited the area know as Little Round Top and I explained a little of the Southern tactics coming from the Rose Farm, Seminary Ridge and Devil’s Den area.  The older gentleman of the group was quite interested and was really happy to actually see the areas that he had only read about in books and literature.  We passed through the Wheatfield, and traveled to the Trostle Farm where I showed them the witness tree and where Sickles was wounded.  We then traveled to the middle of the Union line and showed them where General Armistead and General Hancock were wounded and then we went to the National Cemetary and then went back to the PA Monument, after that we visited Culps Hill, Seminary Ridge and Lee’s statue/Virginia’s monument.  We wrapped things up around 4:00 p.m. and said our goodbyes or until the next time.  They were just amazed at how much there is to do and see at Gettysburg as I am always fascinated at what there is to do.
