The Gettysburg group had a fun time together this week. On Tuesday we traveled to Gettysburg, PA and we participated in a re-enactment of Pickett's Charge, the climatic event of the third day of the Battle of Gettysburg. Unfortunately, a major snow storm shut down Gettysburg and the DC area so we were not able to go to the park on Wednesday.
Upon returning to New Hampton, the group worked on its project Thursday and then set out to museums in Concord, NH on Friday. We visited the NH History Museum as well as the McAulliffe-Shepard Discovery Center.
By visiting historical sites and museums we gained a deeper appreciation of the material we read about and saw in documentaries.
