History blogging from Gettysburg from Drifting through the Grift. Fantastic stuff, and pictures. Several pages of it, actually. The monuments really get me. The Pennsylvania at the spot where the Pennsylvanians had to defend their own land for the first time. Defending your own home soil is so emotional, the theme resounds through history with the terrible sound of thunder.
Most of that war was fought on Southern soil, and people still wonder why talking about this war can cause emotions to run high down South, even 140 some odd years later.
