  1. Beautiful photo! I have a distant cousin (as many of us do) that died in this battle in July 1863. I have a letter that he wrote to his mother and sister before his death. His name was James Henry Triplett. Gone, but not forgotten.

  2. I’ve been to Gettysburg several times since I live about three hours away. I’ve never seen it surrounded by such glorious colors. Beautiful photograph of hallowed ground.
