John S, member The Civil War Heritage Foundation, Inc. portraying General Samuel Cooper, CSA, AG/AI
If you are a frequent visitor to my blog you know I do not photograph people. However, while visiting Gettysburg, PA last weekend, I got to meet John S. a member of the Civil War Heritage Foundation, Inc. who portrays General Samuel Cooper, CSA, AG/AI.
It was such a treat to spend a few minutes talking with him about his role. He truly is a walking history book. Much to my delight he allowed me to photograph him and post the photo here. I took two and this is the one he liked slightly better.
If you ever get the chance to visit Gettysburg, you won’t be disappointed. I certainly need to brush up on my history in this area. A lot of men died protecting the union, fighting to keep the United States united.
On a separate note, I apologize for not posting yet this week. I love that the weather is nicer and I can travel more and be outside; however, it means I’m not inside on the laptop and uploading my photos as often as I would like or should. It’s okay though, I’m taking advantage of every single day I get to be here.
While walking my dog after work, I was talking to a neighbor describing my latest trip and upcoming adventures. She said I was fortunate to get to do so much. I told her I was blessed to be able to travel and live in the moment. I’m so content with my life right now.
I will be visiting a National Park again very soon so stay tuned.
And remember to live life to the fullest. You know never when it will be your last day.
