We decided to take the long way home and M wanted to take some pictures with my camera. Voila! The perfect photo op.
For those of you who don't closely follow the little known facts of the civil war battle here in Gettysburg- The cannon barrels beneath the Gen. John Buford statue on McPherson Ridge were used by John Calef's Battery. It fired the first Union artillery shot of the Battle under Buford's personal direction. This is stated on a small plaque on the barrel.
