From the roar of artillery to the flash of bayonets, living history demonstrations at Gettysburg National Military Park help bring the past to life. Gettysburg National Military Park’s popular living history and firing demonstrations are every weekend throughout the spring, summer and fall. Confederate and Union living history groups will encamp at Spangler’s Spring, across from the Park Ampitheater and the Pennsylvania Memorial through October. Explore their camps, interact with these knowledgeable historians, and witness as they demonstrate the tools, tactics, and firepower of the two armies that waged war across these now hallowed fields.
