Gettysburg, PA

Experience the 154th anniversary  of the Battle of Gettysburg with the Civil War Trust through a series of Facebook Live events on June 26 and July 1-3, 2017. Whether you are in Sioux City or Singapore, just go to the Civil War Trust Facebook page at the appointed times and start watching! Even better, the Gettysburg National Military Park will be hosting an even larger series of Facebook Live anniversary events as well.  The Civil War Trust will be all around Gettysburg—in the Lutheran Theological Seminary Cupola, on the slopes of Little Round Top, on the scene at Lee’s Headquarters, on the field of Pickett’s Charge, in town, and at as many other battlefield places as possible. The Civil War Trust’s Garry Adelman and Kristopher White will be your hosts and, along with expert historians, guides and guests, we will take you virtually to places many not otherwise get to experience. We’ll show you rare photos and artifacts even answer as many of your questions as we can. Join us for Gettysburg Live!
