The hike started at the Soldiers' National Cemetery, then headed over to Culps Hill and Spangler's Spring, where we had lunch. Then we headed north into town and then west towards Seminary Ridge. After looping around past McPherson Ridge, the Eternal Light Peace Memorial, and Barlow Knoll, we ended up back in town for the ghost walk.
Mike, our hike leader, rounds up the troops.
A couple of re-enactors showed up -- not for the hike.
The meeting spot was the parking lot for the now-closed Cyclorama. I think the park is still trying to decide what to do with the building.
