      What could be better; combining a Model A tour with visiting the Gettysburg National Battlefield! Wish I could go. I spent a week at Gettysburg a couple of years ago. I was awed by the experience. I especially remember being at "The Angle" as the sun came up, looking across the open field where thousands of Confederate soldiers attacked in what became known as "Pickett's Charge". Some historians say it was on that spot that the tide of war turned, leading eventually to restoration of the Union and creation of the United States we know today. Don't miss it if you have the opportunity. By the way, here's a couple of books if you're interested in learning about the Battle of Gettysburg:

      James McPherson, "Hallowed Ground: A walk at Gettysburg" (2009); A short, very readable guide to the most prominent places
      Stephen W. Sears, "Gettysburg" (2003); An award-winning history of the battle, but >500 pages
      Harry W. Pfanz, "Gettysburg"; 3 big volumes for the full-meal-deal. Lots of detail here but too much for many readers.
      Kent Masterson Brown, "Cushing of Gettysburg" (1993) about a Union battery commander killed defending "The Angle"

      Hope those of you who go have a wonderful trip in your amazing cars at this amazing place! Post pictures please!
