Union Brigadier General George Armstrong Custer (C) directs his troops while charging toward Confederate Cavalry, July 5, 2013 at the 150th Gettysburg celebration and re-enactments in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The Battle of Gettysburg is underway for the second time in a week and tourists turned out in droves even though the outcome of the Civil War's pivotal encounter has been known for 150 years. This re-enactment was held by the Gettysburg Anniversary Committee, the group which has held such events for roughly two decades. This event appeared to draw bigger crowds on the July 4th holiday than the re-enactments held last weekend by the Blue-Gray Alliance. AFP PHOTO / Karen BLEIER
