July 01, 1863

***Just for the three days of the 150TH anniversary of the battle of Gettysburg, July 01 – 03, I’m going to make a special post with photos that concern the particular day of battle. Today’s photos will include battlegrounds relevant to July 01ST, 1863*** --- After the 3RD I’ll go back to my regular schedule of posting Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

 150 years ago, fighting occurred at the following places, as well as others not depicted.

***Honoring every soldier who gave his life on July 01ST, 1863, both blue and gray.***
