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!
