I was surprised by the number of eHellions and/or relatives who have been to Gettysburg recently.
Mom, Dad, Sis, and I were in Gettysburg on June 26. (If you saw a silver Nissan Rogue drive around the driveway in the National Cemetary where vehicles are prohibited, that was us!)
We had permission from the Park Service, and were given a "Handicapped" paper to be displayed on Sis's dashboard.
We got glares from people who were walking to see the New York monument up close.
Our car was filled with people who was disabled in some way:
Dad- age 91 WWII veteran, with circulatory problems, and has minor dementia, his great-grandfather fought in the Civil War/War Between The States.
Mom- 84 next month, circulatory problems also, 2 of her great-grandfathers also fought in the Civil War
Sis- age 49,deaf in her left ear
Me- age 59, wearing a boot-like thing on my left foot because of a broken foot bone.
Sis was driving that day, and momentarily stopped the car so that I could get out, walk across the grass to take pictures close-up pictures of the monument, and stopped again so that I could get back in the car.
