VSPA REUNION, 2007, included touring Gettysburg Battlefield. I was fortunate to photograph the George Rose Farm, which still stands historically on hallowed ground. Pickett's Charge was an infantry assault in a nearby field where 12,500 CSA advanced over open grounds, as ordered by Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, against Maj. Gen. George G. Meade's Union positions on Cemetery Ridge on July 3, 1863. Four short months later, President Lincoln would deliver his historic Gettysburg Address a near-distance away. It was humbling to stand on the now-quiet battlefield where thousands of our countrymen died. There were no ghosts, or haunting spirits, as folklore likes to boast of ... the knowledge of what happened at this scenic place was enough to raise chills of foreboding to veterans of a war following only a century of time.
