|Shilo is on my to do list. I have been to Gettysburg in the spring for the last three years for the friends work day. Last fall was the first time I have been able to go to the top of the Pa. monument. The view was fantastic! With the recent removal of non-historic vegitation it is much easier to read the field. Many terrain features that were not obvious were easy to see and better interpet the movement of troops and the action. On the morning we last had a work day we parked on Confederate Ave near Longstreets statue. It was very foggy and as we walked out across the Pickett - Pettigrew advance to ourwork site It was very quiet and a little spooky. You can finde those quiet spots there but must account for season and time of day. Also If you have not done the Eisenhower farm it is well worth the time. My wife and I want to go at Christmas in the future as the home is decorated as it was when it was a presidential residence.
