Thirty years teaching US History in the south has finally paid off!
1) the final part of a play, film, or narrative in which the strands of the plot are drawn together and matters are explained or resolved; or
2) the outcome of a situation, when something is decided or made clear.
I live about 2.5 hours from Gettysburg, so I've been there several times. The battlefield tours are pretty good and there's also a really beautiful cemetery and a fantastic painting of the battle at the Visitor's Center. The town itself is pretty quaint. There isn't a whole lot to do otherwise (other then an Eisenhower Museum that I've been meaning to see), but I highly recommend if you're passing through the area and need something to do for a day.
BTW, dirty Yankees was said by Scarlett O"Hara, so I used it for fun. It would be ungentlemanly of me to cast dispersions upon my northern brethren.
