APR 13

Live Interactive Interview: Letters of Gettysburg

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.
