Pictures done by an expert who happens to provide a service at a very affordable price. Whether you are rich and famous or not, Mr. Gibson will turn the clock back and have you looking very 1860ish in a matter of seconds.

Hi Jatkins702, Do you mind sharing what the cost was? This sounds like a lot of fun. I'm planning a short trip to Gettysburg and trying to calculate the cost of everything we want to do...there's so much! Do you happen to remember what the most budget-friendly option was for purchasing a photo? Thank you!
