Pickett’s Charge

On this day, July 3, 150 years ago, Pickett’s Charge marked the effective culmination of The Battle of Gettysburg.  I visited Gettysburg last summer and captured this photo of a statue that sits atop Cemetery Ridge.  This statue represents the Union soldiers that were out of ammunition, using their rifles as clubs in this bitter and costly fight.

I posted this a year ago but there are new people visiting my blog so I hope those who have seen it don’t mind.

    • Thanks Stephen, I’m particularly proud about this shot. Had a plan and goal and it worked. Gettysburg really moved me. Going to go back but Normandy is next on my bucket list.
