    Been to Gettysburg once - back in 1998 - for a day.
    A haunting but very historic place. I would love to
    go back again some time.........
    I hope you can. And when you do let me know, it's only a 12 mile drive for me and the first round's on me!

    The stone walls, looking down the valley towards Big Round Top and the Confederate line. This was the view of the 20th Maine, as well as the 44th New York, 16th Michigan and 83rd Pennsylvania.

    Beyond the helmet, at the bottom of the photos is a clump of boulders called Devil's Den. This was the sight of fierce close quarters combat. It is also home to one of the most iconic photos from the Civil War, though thought to be staged by the photographer.

    Don't know if anyone still cares, but I took the pics so I'm posting them, lol. A few more from Gettysburg, and then I'll post some later of the helmet at Fort Ritchie, Maryland.

    The Emmitsburg Road. This road was crossed by approximately 15,000 Confederate soldiers on July 3, 1863, during the failed attempt to breach the Union lines on Cemetery Ridge, a charge known as Pickett's Charge. The Confederate casualty rate was over 50%.

    The "copse of trees" which is traditionally believed to be the focus point for Confederate forces to converge after covering a mile of open ground. There is debate that the focal point was actually a different copse of trees a little further north.

    Of course we care, I would like to see it make it back to Andy even if he is not currently active as it is his helmet.

    It's pretty good, when a thread gets so old that the original poster isn't even active anymore...perhaps the "send to" list could be abbreviated and speeded up?

    I agree it would be good to see this helmet make the round trip and finaly make it back home to the UK it has hit a slight bumb in the road it would seem but such is life it is safe were it is untill the next leg of its journey can begin.

    Regards Mark
