Great Conversations at Gettysburg

Great Conversations at Gettysburg


Join us for the Gettysburg Foundation's kickoff event of an innovative series of programs, bringing people together to discuss the great American democratic experiment. This series has its foundation in the stories of an epic battle in the history of North America; President Lincoln's Gettysburg Address-the most known and celebrated speech delivered by an American president; and President Eisenhower's residence, reflecting his standing as a military hero, statesman and international diplomat.

The program of lectures and panels will be held at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center in the Kinsley Theatre on Friday evening and in the Ford Education Room on Saturday. The event is free and open to the public.

Friday, June 29 at 7 p.m. (Kinsley Theatre)
