Living History Camps at the Gettysburg Heritage Center

The Gettysburg Heritage Center hosts Civil War Living History Camps most weekends, April - November.  Civil War reenactors set up camp on the front lawn of the Heritage Center, and offer visitors a glimpse into life during the war.  The groups perform various drills and demonstrations, and are available to answer questions from visitors.  The groups vary from weekend to weekend. Free and open to the public! 

Camp hours are the same as the Heritage Center's operating hours on Saturday. On the camps final day (typically Sunday), camp may close as early as 4 pm.
