The Old Keystone State Speaks Today: Gettysburg's Pennsylvania Veterans Reunion of 1889

Of the 90,000 soldiers who served under the United States flag at the Battle of Gettysburg, nearly one-third were Pennsylvanians. On Sept. 11th and 12th, 1889 many of those PA veterans returned for Pennsylvania Day to commemorate their wartime service. Tens of thousands of visitors gathered to witness this spectacle. Codie Eash, of the Seminary Ridge Museum, presents his research on what those present said and did during the celebration.
