The First Shot of the Battle of Gettysburg

by fifer1863 on July 2, 2013

We had the unique opportunity to be invited to join author JD Petruzzi at the First Shot Marker that commemorates the start of the Battle of Gettysburg.  What made it extra special was that we were there, on that spot where 150 years ago Marcellus Jones fired that first shot of the battle.

So CJ grabbed our copy of The Complete Gettysburg Guide and she shared his excitement about the event and recorded a section from JD’s book.

Here are some photos of the monument:

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