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.

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.
