George Spangler Farm Civil War Field Hospital

Overview
Locations

Dr. Willen & Company and the Citizens of Gettysburg will be onsite to help you discover the stories of the soldiers, surgeons and civilians of Gettysburg – just minutes from the battlefield. The living history group will portray a Union surgeon, civilian nurse and hospital steward discussing Civil War medicine―a very accurate portrayal of Civil War medical personnel to include an expert explanation of all phases of Civil War medical care. The Civilians of Gettysburg will recreate the experience of Civil War era civilians, attired in authentic period Victorian clothing and provide “first person impressions.” The site will be open for the 2018 summer season from June 8 – August 12 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday only from 10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Access is via shuttle from the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center. Shuttle tickets (Adults $6/Youth $2) are available at the ticket counter or by calling 877-874-2478.
