Two days at Gettysburg

This weekend was spent with a great bunch of guys pushing somewhere in the vicinity of 4000 figures around our battlefield of Gettysburg.

This post will largely cover my area on the table with a few shots of the action in other areas.
I have posted more photos of the whole table on the Harper's Weekly Blog.

I was General Lafayette McLaws and right from the start we were in action.

The Union retook Devil's Den but McLaws took it back again.
