The three day Battle of Gettysburg marked a turning point not only in the course of the American Civil War, but also for the future of the United States of America. Gettysburg National Military Park will commemorate the 156th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg with Park Ranger and Licensed Battlefield Guide programs throughout the three-day battle anniversary from July 1-3, 2019. These programs include Real Time programs that provide a brief overview of key battlefield moments, in-depth Battle Walks that explore specific phases of the battle over a 2 to 3 hour hike, and special evening programs as well. Additionally, children of all ages are encouraged to attend one of the many family activities during the anniversary.
Please note that this special July 1-3 Battle Anniversary program schedule replaces the regularly scheduled summer program schedule from July 1-3. All regularly scheduled summer programs resume on July 4. The schedule is subject to change and is weather dependent. Water, headgear, sun protection, insect repellent, and sturdy footwear are highly recommended. All programs are free of charge.
The full July 1-3 Battle Anniversary schedule can be found on our website.
