What's Your Gettysburg Passion?

I will never get tired of going to Gettysburg with my children and grandchildren, there is aways something to do and new parts of the battlefield to see. We have been there in every season and have never been disappointed.

This is my granddaughter under the stones at Little Roundtop, she was two then, nows she is seven and loves to come to Gettysburg along with her younger sister and brother. This my favorite photo of her at my favorite place to go, the ray of sunshine is no mistake thats what she is. Just wanted to share this with you.
