Sorry for my delay with these. I have given the best description I can, if someone who has been there more than once can add some commentary (or correct me if I am mistaken) please do!!
My kids and I read the “Gettysburg Address” together here near the location where Lincoln gave it somewhere amongst the gravestones that now occupy that sacred ground.
I forget where exactly this was on W. Confederate Ave., but thought it was a pretty photo.
Another, but closer.
Of course this was the reason for my coming to Gettysburg. To walk the ground where my ancestor fought. My mother was a Weygant and related to Col. Charles Weygant.

The Triangular Field where the 124th NY Regiment desperately fought that day (July 2, 1863).
Col. Ellis Monument. Col. Ellis was the original Colonel of the regiment and led them into the battle, but died there on the field. (That’s me standing next to it.)
