I am absolutely fascinated with Gettysburg boulders. Just knowing that they’re standing at the exact same spot where the soldiers once saw them is intriguing enough, but to ponder their age, to imagine how they might have come up through the earth so randomly, in a variety of shapes and sizes, blows my mind. There are small boulders, large flat, tall wide ones, and of course the amazing Devil’s Den. Perhaps the boulders are a big reason why I love the area near the Irish Brigade so much.
