150 Years Ago Today

Sunset at Gettysburg

It is hard to believe that 150 years ago today the battle of Gettysburg began and ended on July 3rd.  It was probably the turning point of the war into the North's favor.  However, it was the bloodiest with about 51,000 in causalities. Thanks to my parents, I had the privilege of seeing the battlefield when I was in 9th grade.
