It's safe to say this place was distracting, haunting, and peaceful. Which is a strange combination, if I might add. To stand where so many men fought and died, while hearing the sweet sound of chirping birds, is a lot to take in.
Gettysburg is just striking, and I wish I had taken more photographs but I felt it was one of those trips I just wanted to take it without the pressure of getting the shot.
Civil War related books on my to read list

For the book nerds, I am currently reading 11/22/63 by Stephen King and I cannot put it down.
