What's Your Gettysburg Passion?

My parents took my brothers and me to Gettysburg when we were little.  About 8 years ago, I got the urge to go back.  Since then, I have been back 5 times a year.  There is something more than just a battlefield to Gettysburg.  I have visited many Civil War battlefields, and I don't get the same feeling as I do here.  Lincoln was correct when he stated that we can never forget what they did here.  Stand on the battlefield in the early morning or at sunset and you will feel it too.  You will never forget.
