This is the single largest and one of the most pivotal military engagements ever fought on American soil. The sesquicentennial event will take place just outside of Gettysburg over four days, on July 4, 5, 6, & 7. This is where those dusty old history books will come alive. There will be spectacular Battle Reenactments, Field Demonstrations, a large Living History Village, Living History Activities Tents, Guest Speakers and an extensive Sutler Area. Thousands of reenactors from across the nation and around the world will be staging the battle reenactments for this very special reenactment. Visit the camps, learn about Civil War Medicine, Music, Weapons and Daily Life during the conflict that defined our nation and saved the Union.
