Gettysburg. I am a Civil War history nut and over the years we have made I’d estimate 100 trips to Gettysburg. Still learn things on every trip. A dream job would be – to become a licensed battlefield guide there. We’ve made at least one trip a year there since 1997 but usually it’s like 4-5 trips. One year we made eight trips. One of the great things about a trip to Gettysburg is-we pass near Antietam and Harpers Ferry and usually pay visits to those places as well. Washington, D.C. isn’t that far away either. A lot of things to do in the area. First trip of 2017 planned for mid-May.
The t-shirt from above was from 2013 the 150th anniversary year of the battle. We didn’t make it during the actual 150th- July 1-3, 2013 but the following weekend. We would eat breakfast at a restaurant in Gettysburg called “The Avenue” that closed down a little over a year ago. They were selling this t-shirt. I am a big Lincoln fan so I picked it up. It was a comfortable t-shirt and I liked the t-shirt so much on our next trip I picked up another of the same since they still had them in stock.
