Authorities report that between midnight Sunday and the same time yesterday, 53 trains arriving at approximately one every 25 minutes have brought enough veterans to Gettysburg to surpass the 40,000 mark. More arrivals are expected today.
Every train has been met by Army regulars and Boy Scouts who have assisted the veterans from the moment they arrived.
Between June 29th and July 4th, 2013 our posts will come to us courtesy of the “blogging time machine” we have secretly and mysteriously sent a century into the past to the site of the Great Reunion at Gettysburg.
