In the Helmers reading, the writer mentioned the Gettysburg National park, and I immediately thought back to my senior class trip to Gettysburg. We stayed in the town for three days, and went on a bunch of tours, along with a ghost tour! The writer stated that historical sites are significant because they are a piece of America’s history. When I took this image, I was in complete awe of the beauty of the trees and the hills with the rocks. It was so weird standing there, knowing that there were soldiers fighting and dying right in the same spot. I wonder if the trees and the grass looked similar to what it looked like in the Gettysburg war. I think that everybody should visit the Gettysburg National Park at least once in their lifetimes. It is a gorgeous town and the park is breathtaking. The historic feel also makes you feel like you are part of the civil war era.
