Early on Wednesday morning, the Ravens announced that their final practice for quarterbacks, rookies and injured players was cancelled for a team building exercise.

The team packed into a bus and headed 41 miles north to historic Gettysburg, PA.

Head Coach John Harbaugh is a history buff, often using historical references during his motivational speeches to his team and his press conferences throughout the season. The field trip was an attempt to inspire a group of predominatnly young players, and appears to have worked on at least one of the Ravens’ promising young stars.

“What I got from it is what it takes to win a battle, to overcome adversity and keeping the big picture in mind,” rookie linebacker Arthur Brown told BaltimoreRavens.com. “Keeping the focus on a common goal, achieving that goal.”

This wasn’t Harbaugh’s first trip to Gettysburg within the past year, as he also spent some time during the bye week last season checking out one of America’s most notorious battlefields.

Even though there wasn’t an official practice, the day was busy for the Ravens as veterans reported for training camp, awaiting their first official practice at 2:30 Thursday afternoon. While we can’t confirm if the Ravens went on one of the famed Gettysburg ghost tours, we did talk to linebackers Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil, who met with the media on Wednesday afternoon and will be haunting quarterbacks throughout the season. Look for quotes from the two QB terrorizers soon on RSR.
