The Gettysburg Anniversary Committee would like to thank all the visitors and reenactors that have attended our GAC event for the last 25 years.  We have responsibly hosted over 100,000 reenactors and 500,000 visitors from around the world - making those dusty old history books come alive!

This year GAC will be standing down; but we wanted to let you know that does not mean you will not have an outstanding opportunity to experience Living History and Reenactments in Gettysburg this year. The Gettysburg Battlefield Preservation Association will be hosting Summer & Fall, Reenactments & Living History Events at the historic Daniel Lady Farm just 1 mile east of Gettysburg.  The farm was used extensively during the Battle of Gettysburg by Confederate Command for the attack on Culp’s Hill and as a Confederate Hospital. The summer event will be held August 22 & 23, 2020. The August event will feature battles from the Gettysburg Campaign. The Fall event will be held September 12 & 13, 2020. The September event will feature battles from the Antietam Campaign.

We highly recommend these two events for quality living history displays and demonstrations as well as exciting battles each day. For your convenience we have provided the information below for Visitors & Reenactors. We invite you to experience Gettysburg and Antietam as it was in 1863 this summer and fall!

Gettysburg Anniversary Committee (GAC)

For the past 25 years GAC has been putting on the annual Gettysburg Civil War Battle Reenactment in Gettysburg each July. There is no better way to make those dusty old history books come alive then to experience first-hand the battles, live mortar fire demonstrations, talk with Generals, Infantry, Artillery, and Cavalry at the 156th Gettysburg Civil War Battle Reenactment July 5, 6 & 7, 2019. Nowhere else can you hear the clashing of swords, the thunder of hooves, the smell of black powder, the sound of artillery shells bursting in the air and hear that distinctive rebel yell other than at this stimulating event. This year's event will feature daily battles and an extensive Living History Village. It will also include a Living History Activities Tent with a variety of interactive demonstrations that you will be able to see throughout the day, all three days.

Fun and Adventure for the whole family!

For 25 years GAC has prided itself to having one of the best living history areas of any reenactment in the country. After the field demonstrations visitors can stroll through the Living History Village and talk with Civil War Medical Doctors, listen to live Civil War Music, experience Camp Life and see Ladies Period Dress demonstrations. The Annual Gettysburg Civil War Reenactment is an all-day family event that will stimulate all of your senses for an exciting, educational and memorable experience. There is no better way to have those dusty old history books come alive right before your eyes then at the Annual Gettysburg Civil War Battle Reenactment!
