The battlefields at Gettysburg have been getting an interesting makeover

Each year, thousands of visitors travel to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania to walk the battlefield and imagine witnessing Pickett’s charge and the bloodiest clash of the Civil War. But the landscape has changed dramatically since 1863, so picturing the fight isn’t easy. Now, the National Park Service is using modern conservation tactics to take Gettysburg’s landscape back in time.
