Remembering Gettysburg

Having recently been to Gettysburg for the first time, I thought a fitting post on this Memorial Day would be to share a few pictures I took while there. I think about the Civil War more often now that I discovered a great great grandfather who spent three years marching and fighting for the Union. I honor him and all those that served and still serve today. A big heartfelt thanks for giving me the freedom to wake up every morning and have a choice on how I want to spend each and every day.
