The Gettysburg National Cemetery in the Autumn

by Scott Manning on November 14, 2011

This is a view of the Gettysburg National Cemetery from the tower on Culp’s Hill. Dawn Manning took a series of photos on November 5 of this year and stitched three of them together to create this panoramic.

If you click the image for a larger version, there is plenty to see.

Gettysburg National Cemetery

This ground holds the remains of roughly 7,000 soldiers from numerous wars, including many spouses. There were never meant to be any Confederate soldiers here, but there are at least 4 and possibly as many as 9 buried in this ground mistakenly.1
