Gettysburg Trip

By: Kimberly Bryden/Junior Writer

Every year for the last 10 years, history teachers Mr. Gregory Bitner and Mr. Mitchel Less have taken fifty students on a trip to Gettysburg to learn more about the history of the town. This year, they are going on the trip April 13th, 2018. Students grades nine through twelve can go on the trip, but they can’t be failing more than one class. Sign ups are on a first-come-first-serve.

Mr. Mitchell Less has been a BR history teacher for 16 years. Taken from yearbook.

Mr. Mitchel Less stated that the students are going to be watching a 30 minute presentation on the battle of Gettysburg and visiting the Cyclorama.

“We are taking a charter bus to the Gettysburg National Historic site. We will also eat lunch there and take a one hour tour of the museum and then a two hour tour of the battlefield with a tour guide,” says Less.

Less stated that he is always excited to go on this trip.

“There’s so much to see down there and it seems like you learn something new each year when you are down there. The tour guides are excellent and getting out to see the battlefield is really impressive. Not only that, the students that go on the trip seem to enjoy it as well,” says Less.
