August 25, 2020 "The Battle IN Gettysburg – Citizens confronted in Their Homes“
LBG Bill Thomas
As Confederates pursued the remnants of the Union First and Eleventh Corps on July 1, 1863, the residents of Gettysburg saw the face of war not only in their streets, but even in their homes. This walk will begin on Carlisle Street opposite the old train station, near the site of one barricade constructed by soldiers, zig zag through the streets, and end near Baltimore and Breckinridge Streets, where the Confederates built another barricade. In this unique tour, you will be introduced to both soldiers and citizens and learn how ordinary people reacted to these extraordinary circumstances during the Battle IN Gettysburg.
