monument markers

by rena1278

My family took a trip to Gettysburg last summer and LOVED it!! I took a ton of pics of monuments and such and some of the placards that the NPS put up explaining certain things, like the Breatsworks and the Valley of Death. But now that I am getting to scrap booking the photos I have found that some of the edges of writing were cut off. Anyone know of a website that has pics of these maybe so I can include all the writing in my scrapbooking? Thanx a Ton!!

I would start with the National Park Sevice Gettysburg website at http://www.nps.gov/gett/index.htm. For instance, they have photo albums on the site that includes historical monumnets and each has a description of the monument.

Travel Tips for Gettysburg

Civil War Traveler podcast

by Wanderer001

Similar to the general audio tours that can be purchased from just about any shop in Gettysburg, with two main differences. First, being that these podcasts are FREE, and can be listened to on any device that can play the mp3 file format. Second, these podcasts are more specialized giving an in depth look at particular areas of interest. Right now there are podcasts for; Little Round Top, Pickett's Charge, Devil's Den, and The Wheatfield. The catalog does seem to be growing. When I fist found these podcasts there were only two, Little Round Top and Pickett's charge.

I have tried out the Little Round Top podcast. The tour is about an hour long and is just as good as those given by guides. In fact it is narrated by a local ranger. It shows key places where fighting took place as well as giving a little look into the back story of General Mead. Well worth trying out.

All the podcast come with a down loadable companion map to better help understand what is being talk about.

Visit the information centre...

by sharkie

Visit the information centre and learn more about US history. At the center there's a large display of cannons, guns,rifles and much more. All this are found on the areas where the battles where. Up till this day, farmers still finds pieces from the battles. I learned why the 4th of July are USA's nations day. It was that day 1863 that Robert E. Lee gave up at Gettysburg and peace between north and south was made.

Respect the Mouments!

by ckeller

Locals become enraged at the sight of tourists allowing their children to climb on the park's monument and cannons for photos. Respect this sacred ground and have your family stand in front of these markers.

The little secret everyone knows about...

by Wanderer001

Sachs covered bridge. Built in 1852, part of the confederate army of Northern Virginia began its retreat to Virginia by crossing the bridge after the battle of Gettysburg in July of 1863. In 1968 Pennsylvania highway department determined that the bridge was the most historic covered bridge in the state and closed it to traffic. Floodwaters swept it from its abutments in 1996. Adams County rehabilitated the bridge by supporting its trusses with steel beams and by raising it three feet.

If you are looking for a nice photo opportunity, or just happen to like covered bridges this is a must see. The out side of the bridges is in immaculate condition however, the inside has been vandalized over the years. Even with the interior as it is this is still a great site for those who can find it.

Directions on how to find:
Take either Steinwehr Ave. or West Confederate Ave. South then turn onto Millerstown Rd. which will become Pumping Station road right before you cross a larger bridge (I think there is at least on smaller one to go over first) Sachs bridge should be visible to your left while you are crossing the bridge. Once over the bridge look for the Parks marker on the left side of the road for Sachs covered bridge. (see pictures) Turn left onto Waterworks Rd. and you are there.

Jennie Wade grave site

by Wanderer001

The only civilian killed during the battle on the morning of July 3rd. Twenty year old Jennie Wade was kneading bread dough in the kitchen of her sister's house, when a stray sharp shooter's bullet went through two doors and killed her.

Located in the Evergreen Cemetery. Walk through the front brick arch building and follow the path leading straight, look for an American flag on a white pole to help located from a far. Graver maker will be the tallest around compared to the other markers.
