No matter which side they fought on, all the soldiers had one thing in common, they were all Americans.
One of the sights that I saw was the one shown below. It was the rocks which the snipers hid behind and picked off the soldiers from the other side, preferably the officers. I could almost hear the echo of the guns.
The reason I remembered my trip to Gettysburg was that on this day in 1863, President Abraham Lincoln delivered his famous speech, you know, the one that begins with "Four score and seven years ago, ...."
Even today, there are still a lot of subjects that the North and South do not agree on, but so far we have been able to work things out. Although, every few years I hear rumblings of a lot of Texans who want Texas to secede and claim that since Texas was at one time a country and not a state, it had a right to secede. Since Texas is a vital part of the U.S., that would be a catastrophe to the rest of you but we who live here, not so much. Now, Texan or not, have a great day, you hear?
