When we took our semi-annual pilgrimage to New Jersey this year we took a couple of side trips. First, we took a detour over to Gettysburg, PA, to see the battlefield (we never made it to the cemetary because a storm came up), and on the way home we drove up Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga, TN. It turned into a mini-Civil War history lesson for the kids. Here are some of the pics from Gettysburg for those interested.
