Gettysburg Remembrance Day Parade November 21st

If you are near Gettysburg PA this Saturday, Nov 21st you should go to the Remembrance Day Parade for the Anniversary of the Gettysburg Address!
If you have never been there it is something to see. The first time we went, I thought it would be just a regular parade floats ect!!! LOL Well was I wrong! We went the year before we joined a reenactment group so we had no idea what it would be like. Let me say we were under dressed!! Everyone was in their reenactment clothes. We felt so out of place! haha. All the parade consists of is 100's and 100's of reenactors. It is something to see. It is an awsome way to spend a fall day! If you go, go early so you can get a parking place and have time to visit all the stores!! I can't wait!

  1. Hi Jill!....Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment on my blog....I absolutely agree with boys and fast cars being a dangerous mix, that's why it's so difficult for us to agree to his purchase....the reason why we are torn is because he is so un-average (is that a word? LOL) and not like our older son for example! At any rate, we will have to decide what to do but I wanted to thank you for offering your opinion.

    The Civil War Reenacting is so very intriguing, they do that alot where I live too!

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving week!

    P.S. I love winter too!!

  2. Hi Jill ~~ Thanks for visiting my Blog and leaving a comment.
    You have a great Blog here.......I have always wanted to join a reenactment group...I would love to join a group from the American Revolution, but hubby isn't into it. So now I'll come here and read your first hand account of life during the Civil War.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Have a Blessed Thanksgiving.
