Peach Orchard, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania: “Brother Jeb met me at the Gettysburg station in a downpour. As we traveled down Emmitsburg Road, Jeb gave me an overview of the battle. The battle heated up on the second day in Jeb’s orchard, and his barn burned. Artillery and musket fire damaged many trees, but some still produced that luscious blend of lemon and orange tang—refreshing even in a cold rain.”

“So I came to Jerusalem, and was there three days.

And I arose in the night, I and some few men with me; neither told I any man what my God had put in my heart to do at Jerusalem: neither was there any beast with me, save the beast that I rode upon.

And I went out by night by the gate of the valley, even before the dragon well, and to the dung port, and viewed the walls of Jerusalem, which were broken down, and the gates thereof were consumed with fire.”
Nehemiah 2:11-13 KJV
