And The Walls. . .

. . .come tumbling down.


Demolition has begun on the old Gettysburg Visitor's Center. I snapped a few pictures of the tear-down while on a pleasant stroll around town this afternoon. . .and I wasn't the only one. There must have more than half a dozen folks taking pictures. I could only imagine what the demolition crew was thinking. . .

Meanwhile, across the parking lot, the Cyclorama still stands. Indeed, the day before yesterday a Federal judge commuted the death sentence (temporarily at least) of this building. Read all about it here.

On a sadder note. . .
While walking through the National Cemetery on my way back home, I noticed that one of the largest (and oldest) trees had fallen over. . . must have happened two days ago during a powerful late afternoon storm that crashed through the area.
