Overview
Locations

This program follows the 17th Connecticut Regiment from Barlow's Knoll to the Spangler Farm and beyond during the three-day Battle of Gettysburg in July 1863. Through first-hand accounts, we come as close as possible to seeing what the solders themselves saw, thought, and felt on the battlefield. The memories of old soldiers are often criticized as the memories of old men, distorted by time and other factors, however these are the words of those who lived through the trauma of combat and survived to tell about it. All honor to these men who fought for their lives, who lost friends, and suffered themselves on this great battlefield of the war.

Through these first-hand accounts we in the 21st century can see the battle through the soldiers' eyes as they describe what they experienced. This is above all their story, their legacy to us. This program honors them and their sacrifices and shares with you their experiences and insights through their own words.

Presented by Carolyn Ivanoff, this program will be held on the evening before the Living History and Rededication 17th Connecticut flagpole on Barlow's Knoll. The Rededication Ceremony will take place on July 1 at 12 noon on Barlow's Knoll.

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