Remembrance Day
Gettysburg, PA
November 18-20, 2005

Mother Nature gave us one last parting toast of great weather for this Remembrance Day. Once again, Ed Yaw joined us in the festivities and provided invaluable assistance as photographer while your correspondent was marching. We joined the 61st NY and 125th NY in their morning ceremony of planting flags at the New York graves, performed our own ceremony for the Original 67th NY at the monument on Culp's Hill, and then headed down to the school yard by noon for the parade. And keeping with recent tradition, the Fairfield Inn served as site for evening merriment.
