Gettysburg, Pandas, and Memorials

We began our day with a nice bus ride to the beautiful small town of Gettysburg, site of the most momentous military conflict in the Western Hemisphere.  Our historical tourists enjoyed the introductory movie and cyclorama, toured the Gettysburg Civil War Museum, and visited the site near Lincoln's famed Gettysburg Address. After lunch, we hit the battlefield and walked in the footsteps of the Union and Confederate soldiers from over 150 years ago. We hit the Washington Zoo on the way home and check out the pandas. After a yummy dinner of pasta, we toured the major memorials on the National Mall in the evening. Other great day in the nation's capital!
