Irish at Gettysburg

This event is a great way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in Gettysburg and to experience the three-day battle from the perspective of the Irish Brigade. Guests are invited to meet General Hancock at Auto Tour Stop #9 at 1pm for a brief walk in the Wheatfield where the General, portrayed by Randy Feranec who is a member of Confederation of Union Generals, will describe the actions of the Irish troops during that critical period of the battle. 

The evening event features a talk on the Irish at Gettysburg by Licensed Guide Rich Kohr followed by dinner at the Dobbin House. Program Begins at 6:30pm in the Abigail Adams Ballroom at the Historic Dobbin House. We will meet for dinner with General and Mrs. Hancock, followed by a presentation by Licensed Guide Rich Kohr who will give a detailed description of the Irish during the battle. 

Tickets for the complete tour can be purchased directly from any one of the member inns with the Inns of the Gettysburg Area. The cost for the event is $50 per adult, $30 per child under the age of 10. Special weekend packages that include the Irish in Gettysburg tickets are also available.
