This program will be a comprehensive look at the fighting that took place in the streets of Gettysburg during the retreat of the Union army on July 1, 1863 and the sharpshooting that took place in the town throughout the three-day battle. We'll focus on troop movements including the 45th New York and the 55th Ohio regiments and others. We will discuss battle damage on the Civil War era buildings and artillery placements in town; the fighting of the soldiers and the response of the civilians. Many soldiers bled on the streets of the town and died in the dirt. Their stories will be told. Our group will form at the Gettysburg Fire Department parking lot off of Stratton Street. The total walk around town will consist of about two miles on pavement.
