The above and following photographs were all made in or around the Peach Orchard, which is the site of some of the most fierce fighting during the battle of Gettysburg during the American Civil War.

Given that this battle occurred over 150 years ago, there is, of course, no real sign of the carnage that took place here.  In fact, it is very much the opposite as many businesses trade on the history and attract thousands of tourists each year-especially on the anniversary dates.

Speaking of anniversaries, we have just passed the 100th anniversary of the close of World War I, which was to have been the war that ended all wars.  That has not been the case.

2015 is right around the corner and while this is completely naive, and I most certainly know better, it would be nice to think that there would be peace throughout the world in the coming year(s).

Pax.
