Yes we have a famous battlefield to tour by car, bicycle, horseback, and even on foot but we boast a wealth of activities beyond those historic acres.
From historic taverns to ethnic cuisine, farm-to-table dining to unique edibles, the tastes of Gettysburg are sure to please every palate.
With adventures to suit every budget, Gettysburg and Adams County businesses offer plenty of packages to help visitors create their dream vacations.
John Heckman, aka the "Tattooed Historian," will conduct a live interactive interview with Gettysburg NMP’s Chris Gwinn and Shepherd University’s Dr. James Broomall. FREE and open to the public, this interview will focus on “Letters from Gettysburg,” including a wrenchingly candid letter from John Futch, who fought at Culp’s Hill with the 3rd North Carolina, losing his brother in the process.
*This presentation is part of an all-day event, that begins with a FREE tour of Culp's Hill with Dr. Peter Carmichael, Chris Gwinn and Dr. James Broomall. The tour of Culp's Hill takes place at 9:30 am. Anyone interested in doing the walking tour prior to this event should meet at Spangler's Spring at the Gettysburg National Military Park. Tour participants are encouraged to stay for this lively and interactive program, which will offer plenty of opportunities for questions from the audience.
The April 13th programming is made available through the collaborative efforts of Gettysburg College, Shepherd University, Gettysburg National Military Park and the Gettysburg Heritage Center.
