Departing from the itinerary, which had featured a trip to Harper’s Ferry, WV, the History Club opted instead for a more indoor adventure after braving the wind and the cold for several days. The new destination was the National Civil War Museum in Harrisburg, PA. It was an interesting experience to be sure, though a bit disappointing to the expert leading the group.
The day turned suddenly brighter with the discovery of a massive indoor used book store in downtown Harrisburg that caused drooling and awe for at least one member of the group. In fact, he had to be sedated and bodily removed from the store amid cries of “Oh, let me stay. Let me die here.” For the good of all, the club removed to Gettysburg and good order was restored.
