This week’s travel photo comes from Gettysburg Pennsylvania, a place I hadn’t visited since I was in elementary school. After I returned to the US recently, an old friend offered to take me around the battlefield and the historical town and give me an in-depth history lesson.
The Battle of Gettysburg, fought between July 1st-3rd of 1863 was one of the largest battles fought of the American Civil War, and a decisive win for the Union army after forcing the Confederates to retreat.
Here are modern day re-enactors, donning Civil War era uniforms and performing battle songs like “Union Dixie” — songs that were meant to inspire and to raise the morale in war.
What feeling does this photo evoke for you?
