Our first stop was the visitor center where we saw a movie of the battle, and also a cyclorama that was very well narrated. The 100 year plus artwork surrounded us, and lighting was spotlighted on certain scenes as the story was told. Very impressive, very moving.
Above and below you can see the equestrian monument of Winfield Scott Hancock, which we found on Cemetery Hill. It was dedicatd in 1896 by the State of Pennsylvania. General Hancock's information can be found here if you would like to learn more about him.
You can look at their website here. I can highly recommend scrolling down and watching the video. I will also share other photos in future posts.
We passed through very pretty countryside on this trip, and saw fields full of cows, horses and sheep and wide open spaces. One farm had dozens of white geese and goats, and all these visuals made a very pleasant trip home.
