Gettysburg Licensed Battlefield Guide Garry Adelman, along with colleagues Tom Danninger and Barry Martin, systematically located the camera positions of the 237 photographs included in the Annual Reports of the Gettysburg National Military Park Commission, 1893-1904.
The Gettysburg National Park Commission (GNPC) issued annual reports from its creation in 1893 until stewardship was transferred to the National Park Service in 1933. In our third Then and Now post, we showed Howard Avenue and monuments for the Army of the Potomac’s Eleventh Corps.
In our fourth post we continued showing Then and Now photographs on Howard Avenue, this time on Barlow’s Knoll. In our seventh post of Gettysburg Then and Now photographs, Garry, Barry, and Tom presented photographs taken in Evergreen Cemetery and the Soldiers National Cemetery. In today’s Gettysburg Then and Now post, Garry Adelman, Barry Martin, and Tom Danninger present photographs on East Cemetery Hill.
This map, from the Gettysburg Park Commission Photos Then and Now CD, shows us the locations for the Then and Now photographs. Purchase all the photographs from the Gettysburg National Military Park Commission Reports on this CD.
It wouldn’t be revolutionary if we told you that the fame of a place doesn’t guarantee the quality of your experience there, and vice versa. The majority visitors arrive to the Lake Bled (Blejske jezero) stay there for a couple of hours, and do some mellow sightseeing, but Lake Bohinj (Bohinjsko jezero) can be a good alternative if you like being more active during your travels. Bohinj is the largest permanent glacial lake in Slovenia and is part of the Triglav National Park; which is also the only national park in the country. After our unlucky rainy time in the Logar & Jezersko valleys, we were a bit discouraged, but the spirits of Bohinj must have liked us, because they threw us a beautiful sunny day so we could stay outdoors and explore the area by bikes, by foot and … and by cable car! There’s enough things to do and see for minimum three days in Bohinj, but it all depends on the amount of tranquility or adrenaline you want to choose from there.
If you want to see the village life in Slovenia from different point of view and reach some beautiful spots in nature, get a bike. If you want to combine hiking and biking, there is also a cool option to go for a tour with a bike that folds into a backpack!
Surrounded by meadows, mountains, rivers and a lake, you won’t want to miss a walk around the lake. If you feel to roam via hills and meadows for a bit longer, read about a hike to Mount Prsivec our fellow travellers did.
If you feel more comfortable with a local guide who can bring you to some special hidden gems, check the tours provided by the Hike & Bike (Bohinj Energy Hike, Pokljuka energy points, Evening torch walk).
In case you want to experience Lake Bohinj and learn more about its origin, we suggest taking a half-hour long boat tour from Ribcev Laz to Ukanc. To hike along the lake among the trees is one thing, but to see the stunning blue shades of Lake Bohinj surrounded by the magnificent Alps from above; is something completely different. If the weather is good in Bohinj, remember to shift your gaze to watch paragliders take off from the Vogar alpine pasture, or you could always fly yourself!


Other extreme activities you can do in the pristine nature near Lake Bohinj include: rafting, canoeing, kayaking, and last but not least, if skiing is your thing, you should definitely pay a visit here. You can travel to Ribcev Laz (a village nearest near the lake) from Ljubjana (75 km) by bus which takes about two hours, or from Lake Bled (26 km).
Here you can find a very detailed guide to other services in the area of Lake Bohinj in Slovenia, including post offices and info centres. You can easily find a guesthouse or rent an apartment near Bohinj, paying on average $ 40 per double room.
A big thanks goes to Spirit Slovenia for covering part of our trip to Lake Bohinj, and to our local guide Grega Silc for making our time in Bohinj super active!
You got it, Franca, Bohinj is an incredibly calm place and the further from the lake you go, the more beautiful nature you can find there.
In a country that is full of wonderful scenery and and havens of peace and tranquility, Bohinj is one of my two very favourite places. My other favourite place is Dreznica in the Soca Valley, just over the mountains from Bohinj. Thanks Ivana, if you ever get a chance to go to the Soca Valley then do take the trip up to Dreznica. Our jaws dropped in unison and we fell in love with it, so when an inheritance gave me the chance to buy a house there last year we jumped at it. Garry is on the south side of Little Round Top in the area where the 15th Alabama was battling the 20th Maine on July 2, 1863. The reports, issued each November, covering that year through October, outlined the work of the GNPC for that year.
In August, 2008 they were placed in a position to the left of this view (the north side of the stone wall) and facing towards the Baltimore Pike. Places not included on lists of top recommended spots in the world, can create some exquisite travel memories. Similarly to the Logar and Jezersko valleys, their views will touch your earth-loving and adventurous soul.
The people who run the boat company are very friendly locals, and the trip is a genuine welcome. It’s electric and environmentally friendly since there are no engines are allowed in Triglav National Park in Slovenia. To do this, you can either hike from Ukanc or Ribcev Laz (about two hours) take a cable car from Ukanc (about 10 minutes by foot from the port, cross the Savica river) or you can walk from Ribcev Laz from the southern side (about an hour). Snow is natural, since no artificial material is allowed in Triglav, and the views on Karavankas Alps that create the Slovenia-Austria border additionally enhance your winter outdoor experience. Although the church is undergoing the reconstruction, you can still visit and listen to the history of the church with energetic local guide and caretaker. Christopher on the outside wall, which was strategically placed there (the church stands on the crossroad) to protect all travellers and drivers.


The other option is to arrive to Bohinjska Bistrica by bus (79 km) and grab a bike at the Hike & Bike. Of course, this is the price of the places on online booking companies, but you can find a local guesthouse in the villages around the lake for less. Our Slovenian friend (turned into a volunteer guide too) drove us by this lake, we stopped to embrace the beauty of it and I remember the feeling of not wanting to leave, it was so beautiful and peaceful. We have been considering a trip to Slovenia in the new year, we must make sure to include this lake. Slovenia is my home country and Lake Bohinj one of my favourite places to go swimming, kayaking and hiking! I’ve been going there since 1986 and every time I stand on the bridge and look out over the lake it brings tears of joy to my eyes. I was there in July getting settled in for the first time and the local people are delightfully friendly. Reports from 1893-1904 were bound into one volume with the photographs that accompanied each report (a practice started with the 1895 report) printed en masse after the text.
This is exactly the case at Lake Bohinj in Slovenia, which is located only 26 km from the smaller, yet more famous “brother” – Lake Bled. In the case you want to go for a ride with a local and expert biker, you can choose one of bike tours the company provides. We also had the chance to enjoy the unique double haystack called the “toplar” in Studor village. I had never heard of it to be honest, but I’ll be adding it to the list for our Eurail trip in the summer!
If you enjoy mountains, water in all its forms, wild flowers, wildlife, and some of the best wines in the world then visit this area. We simply loved this place and Slovenia was one of the main highlights of our travels last year. Together, these images provide a comprehensive view of the battlefield and the Commission’s work available nowhere else. Comparing the images to the same sites today speaks to the important issues of preservation, commercialization, monumentation, and the growth of the GNMP. We haven’t made it there, but from the photos on the internet it looks indeed spectacular.
