As my older son CJ was attending a Boy Scout event in Westminster, MD my family decided to do our favorite thing and spend the day exploring Gettysburg.  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.

In this video Josh is teaching us about a rock carving on the monument to the 14th Brooklyn.

 

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