Miniburger2Go: Happy Birthday, USA, or Artillery and No Worries.

July 4, 2009

We live near Gettysburg, so this time of year, the nights flicker and thud with fireworks, and the days rumble with re-enactors’ cannonades.

The re-enactments of the Battle of Gettysburg take place perhaps two miles from my house some years, including this one. When the weather conditions are right, I have worked in my garden while artillery stuttered away right down the road.

One year, I sat with friends on their porch in town and watched a pickup truck drive by with a Civil War cannon in tow, on its way to or from a re-enactment battle.

How many places in the world can you hear artillery or see cannons being moved from one place to another, and say “Oh, they’re just playing?”

Not many, I’d guess. Not as many as there ought to be, anyway.
