Oh, beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife,
Who more than self their country loved,
And mercy more than life!
May God thy gold refine,
Till all success be nobleness,
And ev’ry gain divine.
Today, 155 Years ago, The second day of the battle of Gettysburg was occurring.
The entire battle occurred from July 1, 1863 – July 3, 1863
Last September, my family and I went to Gettysburg for my birthday. Since the beginning of this week is the 155 year anniversary, I thought it would be nice to share some of the pictures we took on the trip!

On my birthday, we got up at 5:20 A.M. to see the sunrise from the PA Monument.
I hope you have a wonderful extra-long weekend!
