Those are not "cows!" I know what cows look like.

Just the other day I pointed out chocolate milk cows standing in a pasture. They were all brown, so that must be where chocolate milk comes from,

Heck, Tim gets egg nog from milking his chickens.

Wow! Been a lot of years ago. Now don't go jumpij' off a bridge here but a day to go to Intercourse, PA (No hanky panky either) Lancaster is on the way and is the Center of Amish country. Driving the country side is a day trip.

Gettysburg and the surrounding area is basically all Civil War related. Get the self guided tour CD disk from the National Park Visitor center and take as much time as you want following the tour route. Definitely go to the Diorama down town Gettysburg before taking the battle field tour. Basically that is what Gettysburg is all about, Civil War History.

Going every day and doing something I think you could cover it in 4 to 5 days but if you want a day of rest you could stretch it out to a week.

If you are into it and feel like a youngster, Artillery Ridge CG has a Trail Ride through the battle field. We have not done that yet but I hear tell it is pretty good. Just have to assess you horseback skills.

Searching for things to do in Gettysburg, Trip Advisor lists these, THINGS

We have not done them all but the ones on the battle field tour like, Devil's Den, Little Round Top. It really comes down to what you want to see and how many things you can get to see in a day.



Wish I had better information,

You will never find Centerville, it is CentREville VA.

This was just an overnight on the way to Canada/ Maine GC

We enjoyed the Bull Run Regional Visitor Center.

There are many Civil War places.

Very CLOSE to DC & many places that could take days.

We found info at Good Sam “Find A Campground. “

Gettysburg visit

In my younger days, one of the most emotional things I did at Gettysburg was to walk the battlefield route of Pickett's charge. Starting at the Confederate position on the battlefield, I walked toward the positions held by the Union troops. Approximately a mile of marching towards the enemy over land that allowed only a couple of concealment from the enemy's guns. My thoughts have always turned to the question "what would I be doing when ordered to conduct a frontal attack on a heavily armed enemy?" Would I intentionally "lag behind"? Would I show proper levels of bravery at the shoulder of my comrades? The experience was bone-chilling.

The CD tour is a great suggestion. Pause at each highlighted position on the battlefield and try to envision the activities that transpired that particular day of the battle.

Another must see on your trip to Gettysburg is the site of the battle of Sharpsburg/Antietam (each side had a different name for it). This battle was a one day battle. The bloodiest day in the history of the Civil War. Again, visit each major battle position and envision what was going on that day. The cornfield, Antietam (Burnside)bridge, Dunker church, Bloody lane, artillery hell. The Union "victory" was enough to give Lincoln the courage to issue the Emancipation Proclamation. This battle was the site of Clara Barton's service to the wounded and dieing. Somewhere around 23,000 killed and wounded on this one day.

Being an ex history teacher, I was in my glory when experiencing what I had taught to hundreds of students over the years. My students learned what made up America's past.

Enjoy your trip.
