It was a beautiful here in central Pennsylvania last weekend so we decided to head to Gettysburg for the day.  In addition to packing a lunch, we grabbed my copy of The Complete Gettysburg Guide and my Flip video camera and set off.  As you know our family goal is to learn something new every time we go to Gettysburg and this time we learned several new things.

Here is the first of several videos and photos that we took.  In this one, we are on Big Round Top and CJ is reading about the units that occupied Big Round Top during the battle.

Here is a photo of my son Jacob looking for places to visit in The Complete Gettysburg Guide by JD Petruzzi.


If you are like me and enjoy exploring the Gettysburg battlefield (especially with kids), I highly recommend JD’s book: The Complete Gettysburg Guide
