Johnson City Ride Day 2

Day 2: Gettysburg

The sun! Yeah the sun!
Off to Gettysburg proper. I only had a half a day. To maximize my time I dropped by the visitor’s bureau where I found a helpful woman who instructed me on where to spend my time most efficiently.Gettysburg Visitors Center

Cool train station across the street
Gettysburg Train Statio

Off to the new museum first
Gettysburg Museum

I watched a great presentation on the battle and then it was upstairs to a 360 degree cyclorama painting of the battle. They do a real nice job of telling the story.

I walked through the museum that is laid out chronologically then it was off with my map and new knowledge to ride around the battlefield on my bike.

There are monuments everywhere!

I really enjoyed my visit there. It was pretty emotional. I wish I had more time but it was noon and the road was calling.
