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 duty 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 Spring, 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.

We highly recommend this event 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 as it was in 1863!

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.
