Join us in Sweney's Tavern for a historic Round Table with Tim Smith. Join us for a drink, some food, and take part in his history lecture, "Who lived where, battlefield edition." The area where the battle was fought was largely farmland at the time of the Civil War. Their fields were used as graveyards, their houses were used as hospitals, their animals were killed and their crops where destroyed. But who where they? Join historian and licensed battlefield guide Timothy H. Smith as he discusses his attempt to systematically identify which families lived at the various farms of the Gettysburg National Military Park.
