Paul, Jim and I drove to Gettysburg to see the new visitor center. It is much larger than the old one and covers US history from before the Civil War until the Civil Rights era. I hope you enjoy the photographs. We did not have time to tour the entire battlefield, so we concentrated on the High Water Mark and the Devil's Den. I am always amazed that Pickett's men actually reached the stone wall and a few crossed it. It is a mile from the High Water Mark to where the charge began.

My favorite place!!! Thank you for the photos. My husband and I took a few books of photos taken during the war there and found them all and photographed them as they are there. I have to go back - I love it there
