The original Battle of Gettysburg was fought back on July 1-3, 1863 both in and around the town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and was, for a number of reasons I won’t go into here (lest I end up writing a book) a Yankee/Marxist victory. After the battle Lee took his Army of Northern Virginia, battered and bruised, but not totally defeated by any means, back into Virginia, where they fought on for almost another two years. Meade, the Yankee general in command at the time, chose to not hastily pursue Lee. In fact it was awhile before he got his army going again. He seemed to be almost in shock over having won the battle, a position not shared by too many Yankee generals at the time.
The battlefield is today, and has been for decades, a major draw for tourists, historians, and many others with more than a passing interest. My family and I have been there three different times that I can recall and on some of those trips we also visited other battlefields that were not too distant. We have also visited Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, which is in the process of being turned into a shrine to honor abolitionist/terrorist John Brown.
I am told now that all the battlefields have posted information that the War of Northern Aggression was all about slavery and slavery alone. And so at national monuments history is being erased just the same as at state monuments. If this is the case, then I guess I won’t be visiting anymore “Civil War” battlefields. When I go to a historic place I go to learn and appreciate the real history, not to be propagandized with Leftist drivel.
