Arrived in Jim Thorpe!

I arrived safely at the L.B. Morris School in Jim Thorpe, greeted by Mrs. Barford’s fifth grade class. This morning I had the chance to visit the school library where Mr. Richards talked about buglers, bugle calls, and the battles which took place at Gettysburg during the summer of 1863. We heard the story The Last Brother, written by Trinka Hakes Noble and illustrated by Robert Papp. We also watched two scenes from the movie Gettysburg, in which one of the troops talked about how many bugle calls they had to learn. Remembering all those calls had to be tough!

I’ll post more after I explore a few things around here.
