Summit boys were part of Boy Scout Troop 63's recent visit to Gettysburg National Military Park, camping for two nights and touring the historic sites during daylight hours. 

Gettysburg is the site of what is considered the most important engagement of the American Civil War and, while there were no battles fought on the fields during the weekend, the scouts did have to deal with a heavy rain storm that dumped more than two inches of rain on the area in a single night.

The Scout motto is “Be Prepared” and the Troops showed they were well prepared for Mother Nature's weather whims, enjoying a sunny afternoon on the Confederate side of the park, then enduring the heavy rain that night  before pressing on to tour the Union side on day two -- after which they also visited the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum.
