Gettysburg and Antietam


We were treated to a tour of both the Gettysburg National Military Park and the Antietam National Battlefield while in Pennsylvania last April.  These are not parks to celebrate and have fun, for how can we celebrate when our principles could only be imposed by slaughtering one another. Instead, they are parks for reflection and to gain insight into the lessons of history. There are plenty of memorials to those who fought; both the dead and the survivors. I chose not to photograph them.  They can be seen online. Instead, I chose to show how nature and humanity has restored the beauty of the countryside – a lesson that time and effort can help us heal.  I hope you enjoy these images.
