100_2407We day tripped to Gettysburg and toured the National Military Park.  There is a very good road that passes through all the battlefield area.  It is a very somber place, especially when you think that nearly 50,000 people were killed, wounded, or MIA after the three-day battle.  We had not known how many memorial markers there would be.  It seems every possible unit of the war has had some form of marker placed on the grounds in their honor and memory.  There are stones and statues everywhere along the drive.  We also walked through the cemetery grounds where Abraham Lincoln delivered his Gettysburg Address.
