Gettysburg Remembered

Son Jeremy and I walked over the battlefield at Gettysburg on a mild June evening in 2009.  I recorded my thoughts in a journal and would like to share them on the 150th anniversary of the battle.  Beryl Belsky, editor of The Writer’s Drawer, has published my remarks.  The link is below.
