Interesting Links

I am going to have photos from my recent trip  to Gettysburg on this page. During my stay from November 8 to 14, 2005, I took appoximately 650 digital images and 200 black and white negatives. It will take time to go through them. Therefore, I will be gradually adding pictures to this page as I process and edit them. If you're interested in seeing these images, please check back.

Detail of the 90th Pennsylvania Monument  The story behind this monument is that a cannon ball struck a tree along the front of the 90th PA and knocked a baby bird out of its nest. A member of the regiment climbed the tree and placed the nestling back in its home as the battle raged around him.

View of Little Round Top from the 44th New York Monument. It has a spiral staircase that allows access to the second story. Unfortunately, you can't climb to the top of the round tower as I previously had written here. I must have been thinking of one the round towers that I climbed in Ireland. That sounds like a good excuse.
