We headed north for the turning point of the Civil War today as we experienced Gettysburg National Military Park. The movie "A New Birth of Freedom" and visit to the awesome Cyclorama set the stage as we hit some of the major locations on the battlefield, including the Railroad Cut on Day 1, Little Round top from Day 2, and the Confederate High Water Mark on Day 3. Our young historians also made a pilgrimage to the National Cemetery at Gettysburg, site of their favorite 272 word speech.
And yes, it was very cold. Now off to the boat.
