Mt. Greylock's 8th Grade Trip to Gettysburg!
June 5th - June 8th, 2012
Why does going to Gettysburg matter?
"In great deeds something abides. On great fields something stays. Forms change and pass; bodies disappear; but spirits linger, to consecrate ground for the vision-place of souls. And reverent men and women from afar, and generations that know us not and that we know not of, heart-drawn to see where and by whom great things were suffered and done for them, shall come to this deathless field, to ponder and dream; and lo! the shadow of a mighty presence shall wrap them in its bosom, and the power of the vision pass into their souls."
-Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, Colonel of the 20th Maine at Gettysburg
