<< Beyond the Berms with Scar>>

--Gettysburg--

Each Summer historians, reenactors, and visitors alike will descend upon the small Pennsylvania town to both honor this important point in American history, and hopefully learn about why this was such an important part of our history.  I believe this is a destination all Americans must experience. Fought from July 1 – July 3, 1863, the battle is considered to be the turning point of The Civil War.

Personally, Gettysburg rivals Walt Disney World as my favorite place to visit, obviously for different reasons. While Disney World is an escape, Gettysburg brings history and reality to the visitor.

I have several suggestions that will make your visit more enjoyable.

1.) Try to stay at a hotel at the southern end of town. This will allow you to be walking distance from restaurants, shops, and a part of the battlefield.

2.) Hire a Battlefield Guide. They are very knowledgeable (must pass a test,) and will tailor the tour to your knowledge of the battle.

3.) Inquire if there are any encampments on the weekend (normal May-September.) It is a great opportunity to talk to re-enactors and see an authentic camp and drills.

4.) Even if you happen to see re-enactors outside of an encampment, don’t be afraid to approach them with any questions you may have. Almost all of us are pleased to pass on whatever knowledge we may have of The Civil War.

There are many other destinations close to Gettysburg that can supplement your vacation. Hershey Park, Lancaster, Harpers Ferry, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C., are all within an hour or two drive away.

This edition is about to melt away, but the fun is still going strong at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  As Summer rolls on, it's a great time to start planning those Fall trips. We'll be back in a few weeks with more great tips, news, and deals.  See ya real soon!
