Gettysburg

I was recently lucky enough to get some spare time in the US and took the chance to do a quick visit round Gettysburg battlefield

I've taken a load of photos, (rather unusually) as a pedestrian tramping across the park on a gradually brightening up Saturday afternoon in October. They have already appeared on the Madaxeman facebook page, but not everyone sees that, so here they are again:


They start from around Meade's HQ on Cemetery Ridge, follow Picketts Charge (in reverse - or retreat I guess), then go along the woos on Seminary Ridge, recrossing towards The Peach Orchard and Wheatfield and up to the Pennsylvania Monument back at the top of Cemetery Ridge.

What surprised me a little was how shallow the slope was at Cemetary Ridge that the Union chose to defend, but also just what a bloody long way across the terrain Picketts Charge was too. Big and Little Round Top looked like proper "impassable" hills as well, although I didn't have time to go up them.

Gettysburg

Well, the technology all worked, and the live report is available on this site. The posts are in reverse order, so when you click through to the Gettysburg pages you need to scroll down to the end, and then work upwards to follow the course of the battle.
All photos are clickable (to make them larger).
