Day 12 - Gettysburg
We started Gettysburg with a tour of the Museum, Film and Cyclorama. The film was narrated by Morgan Freeman and informative for the kids and I who don't have the grasp of history that Andy does. We then moved into the cyclorama which is a circular room with the outside walls covered in a continuous oil painting of the Gettysburg battles. Different parts of the painting light up as you listen to an audio presentation describing the battles. This was also very well-done.
After the museum, we checked into our hotel about 4 miles out of town and relaxed for a few hours while the kids swam and I did laundry. We went into town for a late dinner and found the BEST Chinese food at Ping's Restaurant. We had a Japanese roll and 4 entrees. All were superb!
Day 13 will continue with a driving tour of the Gettysburg battle sites.
