150 Years Ago,

I can't imagine the bravery it took to fight that way.

Also amazing it was only 150 years ago.

Great post
Just shared this with my son

Those old napoleonic battlefield strategies of marching lines into rifle emplacements is crazy by today's standards of warfare

Post revolutionary war, arguably the 3 most important days in American history. Before I die I have to visit there. The South almost won dammit!

Think about what our guys faced on D-day. Storming those beaches was insane.

Good post. The Battlefield is pretty amazing. There's a palpable energy in the air around the whole place. Standing on top of Little Round Top and walking through the Devil's Den are particularly powerful experiences.
