With adventures to suit every budget, Gettysburg and Adams County businesses offer plenty of packages to help visitors create their dream vacations.
Join the Civil War Dance Foundation for a traditional Civil War Ball held in conjunction with Remembrance Day in Gettysburg. Period attire is encouraged but not required. Music will be played by the Philadelphia Brigade Band. Dancing will be led by the Victorian Dance Ensemble.
The ball is sponsored by the Sons of Veterans Reserve, the Military Department of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War. The proceeds from the ball are donated to the Gettysburg National Military Park (GNMP) for monument preservation. In the past, this ball has raised over $80,000 for the GNMP.
