Gettysburg at Sunset

The quiet beauty of the sun setting on this historic site is extraordinary. There is a sadness about Gettysburg that hangs in the air and affects you on a very personal level. However, witnessing a spectacular sunset over this hallowed ground, you also experience a sense that after 154 years those who fought and died here are finally at peace.
