163 Years Ago


Today at approximately 3 pm marks the 163 anniversary of the final battle at Gettysburg….Pickets Charge. As with so many battles, it is a battle that should never have been fought, and many of those on the field knew it, but fought anyway. The passion of freedom to self govern overpowered all other emotions and human needs in these men. Although no war can be said to be noble and there is no glory in mass killing, still I honor the memory of the sacrifice both sides made. Some say it was the defining moment in America’s history. I agree.
