This September, the Troop went to Gettysburg National Military Park, and camped at Caledonia State Park. We drove up to Gettysburg on Saturday morning, and first saw a battlefield diorama providing an overview of the Battle of Gettysburg. After the overview we hiked around the battlefield.
The hike started at the Visitor Center, and looped around hitting the important places in the battle. We went to Little Round Top, Devil’s Den, and more. The hike was about 7 miles, and ended with the boys recreating Pickett’s Charge.
Finally the troop went to Caledonia State Park, where we camped for the night. We enjoyed great meals. They enjoyed a nice quiet night during which a light rain fell.
