Visitors Flocking to Gettysburg for Sesquicentennial-- Part 2

A huge turnout is expected for the July 3rd marchto commemorate Pickett's Charge at 3 PM. //// Gettysburg National Military Park typically gets 1.2 million visitors a year and will easily break that mark this year with its 16-day anniversary period which ends July 7th. //// David Runyon, 59, of Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, had his great-great-great grandfather, Union soldier Thomas Thombough, badly wounded at the Wheat Field. Then his ancestor was taken prisoner and died in a Virginia hospital. //// Lots of History There. --Old Secesh
