As always, the Gettysburg Dowdle puzzle was beautiful, challenging, and well made!
I’m a retired travel agent and have never been to Gettysburg! After doing the puzzle, I’ve got to get to Gettysburg! I love love all the educational info you give on each puzzle that you do.
I went to Mount Rushmore and San Antonio, Texas because I loved those puzzles and was motivated by doing them. Gettysburg is now on my bucket list. Thanks for all you do to make each puzzle so informative!
I have enjoyed doing many of the Dowdle puzzles, and I believe this is my favorite one.
For me, it wasn't too hard or too easy.
There is one feature that I haven't seen on any other Dowdle puzzle (nor any others): In the background, there is a group taking part in the annual Gettysburg Civil War Battle Reenactment. In the foreground (and scattered around the middle ground), there are contemporary tourists. The really neat part is there are quite a few soldiers who are painted with colors much more muted and semi-transparent. (For example, you can see thru the flags). It took me a little while before I figured out that Eric is using this technique to display figures ("ghosts", if you will) from the actual battle.
This was a fun puzzle to do with so much history involved. It brought back memories of my several trips there.
This was my 1st Dowdell puzzle. I did the 500 version. I loved this, Gettysburg is a very important place for me & I have visited with my students. Once I completed it, I posted a pic of it on a Gettysburg group site I belong too & got raves. Hopefully many were sold. Enjoy!!!!
