Halfway through the eight-stop Savor Gettysburg Food Tour, I was slowing down. I had already eaten chicken fajitas and pork carnitas at El Costeno, followed by gooey macaroni and cheese with big lumps of crab meat at One Lincoln. I had sampled more than a few varieties of hard cider and red wine at the retail shop of Hauser Estate Winery. Now, seated at the rustic wooden bar on the second floor of the Garryowen Irish Pub, I looked warily at the dish in front of me, laden with yet more food: a dollop of creamy mashed potatoes topped with a single sausage slice and slivers of caramelized onion; a six-bite serving of shepherd's pie; and a tiny breakfast sandwich, consisting of a quarter-sized sweet biscuit, topped with a round of ham and a quail's egg. "Fun fact," said our tour guide, Lori Korczyk, in the same cheerful tone she had employed all morning, whether she was telling us about the excellent local restaurants or the horrific Civil War battle that had made thw town famous.

Stevenson has had a tradition of turning out high-powered offenses, but it has been the defense that has carried the Mustangs this season . And the unit delivered again Saturday night as Stevenson defeated visiting Gettysburg, 13-6, in a second round Division III playoff game. Stevenson's defensemen Parker Bratton , Kyle Holecheck, Kyle Fendlay, Matthew Schenck and midfielders Ryan Rubenstein and Warren Pumphrey dominated the Bullets, and kept another team under six goals or less for the 13th time this season.

McDaniel's 2014 season ended in shocking fashion when the team surrendered six unanswered goals in a 16-15 loss to Centennial Conference foe Gettysburg. More than a month after that April 26 setback, coach Matt Hatton said the outcome could serve as a positive for the Green Terror (6-9 overall and 3-5 in the league). “I'm not sure that wasn't a good thing for our guys as motivation in the long run,” he said. “Obviously for the short term, it was very painful. But everybody's excited.

One factor that separates the top men's lacrosse teams from contenders is the ability to withstand pressure. Goucher played well enough to capture its first NCAA tournament berth last year, but the Gophers still have some ground to make up in terms of being lumped in with the top-tier teams. Goucher learned that lesson Wednesday, as Gettysburg, a three-time NCAA finalist since 2001, withstood a two-goal first-quarter deficit to escape with a 6-4 decision before 241 at Beldon Field in Towson.

Gettysburg has a slight 2-1 lead in the series and defeated Stevenson, 12-7, in a NCAA tournament semifinal in 2009. The Bullets (11-6) had dropped their three previous contests until beating Ohio Wesleyan, 7-4, in the first round on Wednesday. The Mustangs (16-4) have won 11 of 12 games at home this season, most recently against Birmingham-Southern in the first round. Here are a few factors that could influence this NCAA tournament second-round contest at Mustang Stadium in Owings Mills Saturday night.

Here is an excerpt of an editorial from the Philadelphia Inquirer, which was published Tuesday.IN THE rolling hills around Gettysburg, there's once again talk of wholesale casualties -- this time, if the National Park Service charges ahead with its creative plan for a makeover of the battlefield's visitor center.No bloodshed, of course. The feared victims are the merchants who serve the tourist trade around the hallowed territory of Pickett's Charge.Because the Park Service would build its new visitor center and museum about a half-mile from the present site atop Cemetery Hill, merchants nearby worry that their livelihoods would retreat along with the footsteps of Gettysburg's 1.7 million annual visitors.

After escaping with a 9-8 overtime decision over Centennial Conference rival Ursinus on Wednesday night, No. 6 Washington College went through equal amounts of relief and confidence. “From a coaching standpoint, a huge sigh of relief,” coach Jeff Shirk said on Thursday afternoon. “I think from the players' standpoint, there was an excitement. We definitely dodged a bullet against a very good Ursinus team that played very well last night. But at the end of the day, it was a little more excitement than relief because we found ourselves in a dogfight right from the beginning and found a way to win at the end when it looked like we weren't going to. So I think it was a great experience that will help build the program and the team.” The Shoremen improved to 10-1 overall and 5-0 in the conference, further solidifying their grip on first place in the league.

Now do you get it? When President Barack Obama promised to redistribute the wealth, people didn't think he meant their meager savings. When he promised health care for everyone, they didn't think it would change theirs. When he bowed to foreign kings, people thought he was being polite. When he apologized for America's behavior they got a little uneasy, and when he said America wasn't a Christian nation, people said any religion was accepted here. I could go on ad nauseam, but the most sickening was leaving God out of his rendition of the Gettysburg Address, a sacred American document.

Today's 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address is getting a lot of attention. Here are five things you probably didn't know about the speech: 1. The speech was not delivered at the battle of Gettysburg, which was fought in July. It marked the dedication of a Union cemetery, one that still draws many visitors today. 2. President Abraham Lincoln was not the featured speaker at the 1863 dedication. That honor went to Edward Everett, whose lofty career included time as a clergyman, U.S. senator and president of Harvard University.

Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address 150 years ago this Tuesday. At 272 words, it is a model of brevity and a testament to Lincoln's political wisdom. He shows us that words can clarify, challenge, inspire. Perhaps most of all, they can stop us in the muck of our political selfishness and prompt us to imagine a country greater than the silly procedural games and hate-filled diatribes that pass for civic discourse these days. Last April, I visited Gettysburg National Military Cemetery on a field trip with my college students.

Last week, the Harrisburg, Pa., Patriot-News' editorial board did something we editorial writers are loath to do: admit a monumental error in judgment. With tomorrow's 150th anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address fast approaching, the current editorialists at what was, in 1863, the Patriot & Union, felt it incumbent upon themselves to officially apologize for their predecessors' dismissal of the most celebrated presidential remarks in our nation's history as "silly.

The greatest words any American ever said were spoken by a gaunt, war-haunted man in a tiny Pennsylvania college town 150 years ago Tuesday. The celebrated orator Edward Everett had spoken first, a gusty address that began with a nod toward "this serene sky, overlooking these broad fields now reposing from the labors of the waning year," and wheezed to a close two hours later with a reference to "the glorious annals of our common country....

Touring the Gettysburg battlefield can be a solemn and moving experience. But not if your eyes are transfixed on the 307-foot steel tower that looms over the battlefield. It is a wretched excess, an intrusion of rank commercialism that mars this historic landmark.The tower should be blown to bits, the sooner, the better. It sits on private property overlooking the battlefield. Fortunately, the owners have expressed an interest in selling this atrocity. The asking price? In the vicinity of $6.6 million.

Sam Bradman scored the last two Salisbury goals, including the game-winner with 15.7 seconds left in overtime, as the Sea Gulls, ranked third in Division III, upset top-ranked Gettysburg, 11-10, Saturday. Bradman (four goals) gave Salisbury (10-0) a 10-8 lead with 8:18 left in the game. The host Bullets (9-1) answered by scoring twice in the last 4:29, including Kyle McGrath's game-tying goal with 39 seconds left to force the overtime. Shawn Zordani found Bradman just inside the restraining box. Bradman took two steps and his right-handed shot landed in the bottom left corner of the goal, his second game-winning goal of the season.
