Even though I'm a "Buccos" fan I thought this was pretty cool.
Col. Strong Vincent rallied the Union troops at "Little Round Top" during the battle of Gettysburg on the second day of the battle. The 20th Maine (under Vincent)fought back attacks by the Confederates 6xs before they counter attacked. The Confederates never tried to attack on the right side of the Union line again. Vincent was mortally wounded and promoted posthumously to Brig. General.
This is a pic I made after We went on our honeymoon. I stitched the photos together using Canon's Zoom Browser.

North Hills Golf Course is an 18 hole course located just north of Corry,PA off of PA Rt 426.
My dad was the superintendant of the course from 1975 - 1984. He also served on the golf commission as member and chairman. This was a great summer job for me when I was attending Edinboro University from 1981-1984.
The correct title is "Fort Pitt Blockhouse".
Nice photo, but you should know, this is not called "Erie Sea Wolves Stadium". The proper title is "Jerry Uht Park".
This is the elementary school that I attended K-6. Sadly, it closed in 2008.
The school never burned down. The senior high wing burned on Nov 22,1964. The senior high went to school in the junior high side in the afternoon and the junior high went to school in the morning. At the time of the fire there was a new wing being built on the western side of the school at the intersection of Pleasant st. and Summer St. The building was renovated from 1991-1992(the year of completion). This is according to my father(James Becker, Jr.) who taught social studies at the school from 1962-1994.
