Did you know

Did you know the battle of Gettysburg happened by pure chance ?
It seems that General Robert E. Lee was heading his troops north towards Harrisburg  He heard that their were some boots in Gettysburg. In desperate need for the shoes for his troops he headed his men there.
Meanwhile Union troops were also headed north. They collided so to speak with the Confederate troops and this resulted in the bloody battle of Gettysburg where 50,000 men lost their lives

It's going to be great relearning all of this stuff as you get ready for your trip as it's going to make me that much more excited about mine though I'm going to have to wait a lot longer than you are - :-(
