I visited Gettysburg on my high school trip in 1954. I am sure the surroundings today are much different then they were then. I agree that is a somber place and the "ghosts" of those fallen on both sides must look at us tourists with disdain with the way we live today bickering among ourselves. The country was united once again after paying a very high price but I fear that we haven't learned any lessons from the past. The unity that was won seems shallow in this day and age and in some ways we still fight the war for unity to this day but within our own borders and without any weapons except our tongues in discontentment.
