Good morning all! We departed Washington early this morning, had breakfast (no pancakes), checked out, loaded up the bus, boarded the bus, and most promptly went back to sleep.
We arrived at Gettysburg about an hour later, which is where we are right now.
We are currently on a bus tour of the battlefield with our extremely knowledgeable guide Chuck (pictured), who is a Civil War and Gettysburg expert.
The Gettysburg site is amazingly well persevered with panoramic views, cannon, and beautiful monuments.
The site also has an impressive Visitor Centre with great displays and a full movie theatre. We will be returning there upon the conclusion of the bus tour to view a film on the Civil War narrated by the great Morgan Freeman.
After Gettysburg, we will begin our return journey home. ETAs will be posted periodically throughout the day.
Will update more when more happens.
