Overview
Locations

Gettysburg is the only small town in America where every house, farm and place is known by its 1863 name. That in itself can be very confusing. How many Weikerts where there? Where are the Spanglers located? Name the Taneys, McPherson's, Herbst's and Reynolds, who owned the woods that are now part of the National Military Park.

Presented by historian Ken Rich, this is a 60 minute program will try to sort all this out. Or confuse you even more! An enlightening program taking a look at the battle from a different and unique perspective!

It is recommended to purchase tickets in advance to secure seating.
