Return from Gettysburg

I'll post more on the Gettysburg reenactment later. But WOW. 15,000 reenactors is impressive. You watch the infantry come through, and keep coming, and keep coming, and you feel the South is invincible...

I was hit by how many reenactors were there on Saturday morning. I stood at the top of the hill, looking out at a camp more vast than any I had ever seen, and I realized that this was JUST THE ARTILLERY!!

Getting back was a challenge. It seems the gods wanted me to take part in the defense of Atlanta, and stranded me there for a while... Ironies.
