Photos from my first trip to Gettysburg, August 1990

They used to let kids climb all over the cannons.


Devil's Den. I am wearing a USMC shirt btw.



The famous spot where the guy took the "Dead Confederate Sharpshooter"

And finally the Union soldier Halloween costume I insisted my mother make me when I was about 8 or 9 years old....

Infantry hat, Cavalry coat and saber and Artillery pants.  Yep. Farb-tastic.

    1. I didn't start reenacting until 2011. But my interest in the civil war goes back at least 20 years.
