Gettysburg & Washington DC: Civil War History

April 7, 2015  -  April 10, 2015

Hello. My name is Thomas McRoberts and it is my great pleasure to direct the students from De La Salle College through their tour of Gettysburg and Washington, DC. The students arrived safely in Gettysburg after a peacefully uneventful bus ride from Toronto. Soon after arrival, we headed off to Dobbins House Tavern for dinner. We ate in an atmospheric dining room (the building dates from 1776) and had a little time to explore the main street of the town. There seem to be historic plaques everywhere, reflecting the events both during and before the American Civil War. It served to whet our appetites for a Battlefield Tour tomorrow.
