This year is the 153rd Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. Here are the special events for this year’s commemoration. Unlike most other years, the Sacred Trust lectures are scheduled on the same three days, which for me is a bad thing, as I now will probably miss the lectures in order to be on the battlefield. The schedule for the lectures is here.
It’s a shame, because there are quite a few I would have liked to have seen live, but I suppose I’ll just have to wait for the YouTube videos to be posted.
The three day Battle of Gettysburg marked a turning point not only in the course of the American Civil War, but also for the future of the United States of America. Join Park Rangers and Licensed Battlefield Guides during the 153nd Anniversary for a series of free guided walks and talks that discuss, explore, and reflect on this important chapter in our nation’s history.
Note: On all park avenues please park your vehicle on the right side of the road, unless otherwise directed, with all wheels on the pavement. Schedule is subject to change.
