These men gathered, in authentic Civil War Union attire, at the new Gettysburg Memorial Visitor’s Center in Pennsylvania. They demonstrated military formations and mock-firing of weapons. Gettysburg was amazing—the brand-new museum (visitor’s center) as well as the battlefield tour, which I did with the aid of an audio CD and a map. I posted this in honor of all of our veterans and all those who died so that our country and freedom might live. Thanks to Nick Boren http://www.flickr.com/photos/cougars/ for inspiring me to post my photos on this theme, by viewing his extraordinary images on his photoblog.
