This morning we broke camp and pulled the trailer into Gettysburg and along Confederate Avenue. First we stopped at an artillery position and spent some time chatting with a Confederate costumed interpreter before heading to the Gouverneur Warren monument on Little Round Top where we met up with Ranger Troy Harman and spent the next hour learning about Confederate attack of the Union left flank and the factors that contributed to the Union’s successful defense of Little Round Top on July 2, 1863. We must say we are incredibly impressed with the depth of knowledge these NPS rangers and interpreters have and their ability to convey the complexity of history in a way we can understand!
