Gettysburg

Spent Tuesday touring the battlefield. There are more than 1400 monuments here. So much history, so many deaths. Really puts into perspective our countries history.

We had a private certified your guide which made it very educational.

We stopped for some local homemade ice cream for lunch

Then off to the visitor center.

They have a fabulous cyclorama painting and we also took the shuttle to Eisenhowers farm.

Before heading back to the B&B we took some side roads in the middle if nowhere to see my first covered bridge. It's the Sachs bridge and it was breathtaking.

A pretty full day. Today we are heading to Hershey PA and then back to Phillie. I plan on having chocolate for lunch!
