Join us for a day hike at Gettysburg, the largest and bloodiest battle of the Civil War. We will start with a visit to the new Visitors Center, which opened just last year. Much more than just a center for this battlefield, it is really a monument to the Civil War itself and is well worth the visit. We'll be hiking southern part of the battlefield where much of the three-day's battle took place, and end up the day with the now traditional trip to the ever tasty Lincoln Diner.
