Plan Your Gettysburg Trip


NOV 19

Living History Camps

Most weekends, April through November, the Gettysburg Heritage Center hosts Living History Camps. The camps are designed for visitors to explore and gain a better understanding of what life was like for the soldiers during the war. Periodically throughout the day, demonstrations take place. A different group sets up each weekend, allowing for both Union and Confederate camps. Demonstrations vary from weekend to weekend.  

The camps and demonstrations are free and open to the public. Camp opens at 9 am, and stays open until 5 pm, with extended summer hours until 7 pm.

Oct. 1-2:            Co. F 4th Va Infantry
Oct. 8-9:            Barbour Grays
