Gettysburg National Military Park just posted their schedule for this year’s anniversary programs. It’s another great lineup of activities, and I’m looking forward to it, even as I’m a bit sad there will be no Sacred Trust lectures this year. I urge everyone to come to Gettysburg, even though it will be crazy crowded, because these programs are well worth it.
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 154th 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.
