Battle of Gettysburg 150 years ago today



Documented that this was the cannon that fired the first shot at the Rebs:








Made a picture of Diann at the same place:


Big Round Top is behind her about 400 yards.

Great pics TH. I remember you went up there last year- or was it longer? A bunch of the Leon Rifles went this year for the 150th, but timing wasn't right for me to take off work this trip. They say it was a BLAST

I'll bet! I'm not a re-enactor or even much of a historian, but very much appreciate history.



Here I thought about the movie "Gettysburg" that covered the struggle at Little Round Top.
This monument to the 20th Maine is looking south where the Confederates approached.



Someday, I want to show you the picture of a honest to goodness ghost brushing past Diann that I took in Dobbins House Pub.
I swear to God.

Don't want to post it here because I'd loose control of the picture.

You ought to try it one day. You'd LOVE IT. I'll bet between my stuff and the other locals we could outfit you completely for a weekend. You are welcome to use my 58

I know.... If that dick would have been about two feet farther back the pic woulda been much better

Thanks Vic. Like I said I'm not sure I've ever posted it before. I have more from CW stuff somewhere. I'll try to dig some up. Eloy and family was there too. I think he took some great shots that weekend

Maybe it's just me, but the tourist with the camera & hi-viz chair kinda kills the mood.

You, on the other hand, are frighteningly authentic.

Yeah, we had those back then, but they were limited issue.

Authentically sweltering even in jean wool. That was in Osceola, and it was hot as shit during the day and coat weather at night.

Awesome shot
