Rock Carvings

Gettysburg Rock Carvings on Culp’s Hill

by fifer1863 on May 15, 2012

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

Gettysburg Rock Carvings with Sarah

by fifer1863 on March 23, 2012

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 third of several videos and photos that we took.  In this one, we are in the area near Devil’s Den and my daughter Sarah (aka @civilwarsallie)  is reading about some of the more difficult rock carvings to find on the battlefield.

Here are a couple of photos of my kids looking for the carvings.  They were very hard to see.
