As a 30 plus years as a Civil War reenactor, I can honestly say that this past year was the worst reenactment I have attended. I will NOT be returning to Gettysburg again. That is pretty sad since I have been coming here every year...More

We attended the 153rd anniversary of Picket's Charge as part of our Gettysburg weekend. We highly recommend this event. There are two battles, a mortar demostration/competition, period reenactors and history areas. There are many people like morticians, doctors, cooks all telling the tale of how...More

My family attended the 07/02/16 Saturday events. We had bleacher seats which are not the most comfortable of wood seating. The first event of this day was a simulated Calvary battle. It started late and the host spoke throughout the whole event. I was not...More
