Dan Wegmueller: An up-close, personal look at Gettysburg battlefield
Placeholder Image
Having visited the Flight 93 Memorial, the next objective I had arranged for my Australian guests would be a guided tour of the Gettysburg Civil War battlefield. After a full day's drive we arrived at Gettysburg, having spent the day maneuvering a full-sized Yukon SUV, laden with passengers, luggage, and playfully dubbed "The Cow," through the Appalachian switchbacks and small towns. After a restful night's sleep, we arrived early in the morning at the Visitors Center to meet our official battlefield guide.
