I wish I could remember the location of where the photo of the 3 prisoners was taken.

So proud of myself first time ever running (without stopping to walk in between) practicing for my first 5k in two weeks 🏃‍♀️😵 #almostdied

The enemy.

I’ve always had a love for history as I firmly believe that our present is rooted in the actions of our past. Walking the battlefield at Gettysburg was an especially surreal experience. My great, great, great, great grandfather Meredith Mack Jolley served in the North Carolina Confederate Army 28th Infantry Division Company H and was wounded at the battle of Gettysburg (and subsequently promoted to rank of sergeant). These markers commemorate those who perished in the fight. Seeing the site of this battle and recognizing my own personal connection to this place and those events so long ago truly moved me. So grateful to @beachmamakristi for research that lead to this connection and @kabritt81 and @brittinghamjulie for taking the time to show me around. Also Lane was my fathers name so that was an interesting point too. #travels #travel #wanderlust #gettysburg #civilwar #connectingtothepast #history #familyadventures

Touching a piece of history. Canons from the Civil War.

-Gettysburg Pa. we stood where the first shots were fired. Stood in the exact spot of Pickett’s charge. 2 hours later, we were standing At Antietam, where the bloodiest day in American HISTORY took place. Over 23,000 casualties (men listed as killed, wounded, captured) took place there. Can’t help but get teared up and emotional when seeing where so many brave men lost their lives.
