150th Gettysburg Reenactment June 27th-30th

Well it is finally here! The time we were waiting for and the main reason for this trip. There were 2 commemorative reenactments to remember the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg and we participated in the 1st one. They had 11,000 reenactors show up for this event. They even had people come over from Germany, Australia, Italy, Japan and then of course our neighbors to the north- Canada!  So it was a big to do! Each morning started with a cavalry battle. There was some sort of battle going on all day long each day so it was really amazing! My kids had a blast as well. I hope you enjoy these photos!

This was truly amazing to be a part of. The next few years are 150th events so hopefully we can make it to more battles on the east coast! When this was over we headed home. I was sad to leave the gorgeous scenery of the east coast but at the same time it was nice to get home and sleep in my own bed!
