Gettysburg Part Two: The Auto Tour

161 After leaving the visitors center we climbed back into the car armed with a map and we drove around visiting key historical sights.

  162163 The one thing that struck me the most was the sheer number of monuments like this one dotting the country side. 164

Alex said this looked like a good place to stop and get out to look around. He ran up (most of the way) the tower. I climbed it slowly.

Oh look more people ignoring the sign to not climb up!
