Gettysburg, PA

Our last adventure before heading back to Texas via D.C was Gettysburg, PA. We decided to tour Gettysburg via a Segway tour. The Segways really were a fun way to see everything. We also visited the Gettysburg Visitors Center that has a museum, short film and a cyclorama.

We learned a lot about the battle. What a somber experience. No one really "won" that battle with all of the casualties. I guess that's really a good summary of the entire Civil War. So many families and friends fighting against one another. We had such a good dose of history on this vacation which I absolutely loved. It was so interesting to stand where so many historical events occurred that shaped our country.

Where liberty dwells, there is my country. ~Benjamin Franklin

How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy! ~Thomas Jefferson
