Another long day. We spent a lot of time at Gettysburg: watched the film, visited the cyclorama 360-degree painting, toured the museum, and took in a ranger talk and walk at the National Soldiers Cemetery, where Lincoln delivered his address "Four score and seven ..." Then we took the old road through York and Lancaster and Amish country to Valley Forge, arriving as the visitor center and exhibits were closing, so we did a drive-by of Washington's Headquarters, then back roads to Allentown for the night.
