Though I admit it can be eerie, I love visiting the Gettysburg battlefield on an overcast day (the rain can stay away, though …) You just can’t deny that there’s a heavy feeling of something --- grief, pain, valor, gallantry --- on any given day, but on a rainy day these feelings seem to be magnified. This particular photo shows South Confederate Avenue at the base of Big Round Top. Gen. Wells perches at the upper right of the photo, keeping his eternal vigil over the field where a failed cavalry charge took many lives.
