Around this time last year I was invited to go down to Gettysburg Cigar Company for a cigar and brandy tasting that was going on for re-enactors appreciation weekend. I thought it would be a great way to see a city that I’ve never been to while learning a little about its history.
I sat in on a lecture given by an actor and was completely drawn in. The actor was fantastic and had a room full of people in full garb shouting and cheering numerous times throughout the reading. One single visit turned me on to the history of Gettysburg.

(Looking more forward to someday actually going to Egypt, but first things first.)
I loved going to Gettysburg. One of my favorite places. Even as a kid. I even named our 2 puppies after Civil War generals.
