So after Washington, we took the Amtrak back to Harpers Ferry – the very Amtrak that just had the accident in Philadelphia – don’t know if we had the same conductor or not.
The next morning we headed for the Gettysburg Battlefield. We spent a lot of time at Pickett’s Charge where we hiked across the field – me, not as far as the others, but still quite a distance. Later, we headed up to Little Round Top. We also wandered around Gettysburg College which was used both by the Union and Confederates during the battle.
