We were on-hand Saturday to cover to Remembrance Day Parade in Gettysburg, as well as the illumination of the graves in the Soldiers National Cemetery afterwards. In this post, we’ll take a look at the illumination. We will be bringing you photos from the parade (as soon as we’re done sorting through them) later in the week. If you would like to watch the entirety of Saturday’s parade, you can do so below.
