Union Brigadier General Francis C. Barlow is this week's feature for #SoldierSaturday. While rallying his men onward, Barlow was shot in the side. He wrote: "Everybody was then running to the rear and the enemy were approaching rapidly. One man took hold of one shoulder and another on the other side to help me. One of them was soon shot and fell...Soon I got too faint to go any further and lay down. I lay in the midst of the fire some five minutes as the enemy were firing at our running men. I did not expect to get out alive. A ball went through my hat as I lay on the ground and another just grazed the forefinger of my right hand. Finally, the enemy came up..." Tune in to next week's #SoldierSaturday to see what awaits Barlow. ... See MoreSee Less

Ladies Period Fashions at The Gettysburg Reenactment

Reenactments are not exclusively a gentleman's domain. A profound visual pleasure at every reenactment is viewing the variety of ladies in period dress. Many of the ladies take great pride in interpreting civil war era attire by wearing garments they have painstakingly researched and hand crafted. The various styles and colors will certainly catch your eye.

There will be a Ladies Period Fashions demonstration in the Activities Tent at the Gettysburg Civil War Battle Reenactment. Please visit our website:

Youth Activities Tent

From the first event in 1995, The Gettysburg Anniversary Committee events have always featured some of the best living history at any civil war reenactment. Over the last 4 years a Youth Activities Tent has been added to the living history smorgasbord. An array of activities at this tent will include enlistment, life and equipment of a young soldier, medical, music, drilling, a civil war art contest and honorable discharge. The Youth Activities Tent allows the youth that come to the event to get a feeling for what a child their age might have down back in 1863.
