Each year, at Gettysburg, hundreds or thousands of Civil War buffs come together to reenact the battles here over four days of celebrations, education, weddings, and more. This year, as part of Road Trip 2010, CNET reporter Daniel Terdiman was on hand to chronicle the action.
Rather than try to explain the complexity of the battle--and mainly so as not to get Civil War buffs worked up about inaccuracies--Terdiman has decided to let the photos of the battle speak for themselves.
Here, we see the Confederate forces firing their cannons at the Union troops on the far side of the battlefield.
