Gettysburg’s 150th Anniversary Event Planning

Published June 20, 2013

Now that the Gettysburg Festival is in the rearview, the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg is just around the corner — and there’s a calendar full of events for ten days from June 27 – July 7. If you’ve never visited Gettysburg during Reenactment Weekend, you’re in for a real treat. You’ll have the opportunity to learn from area historians and re-enactors as the events surrounding the Battle unfolded — and get a glimpse into the way that ordinary townspeople experienced the Battle through historic guiding tours.

But there’s so much more to experience during the 150th Anniversary, and One Lincoln is a great place to start each day with a grab & go breakfast (7am – 10am) or lunch (11am – 2pm) before taking off to experience the presentations, walks around the Battlefield, and cultural events.

I won’t list all of the events here, but I will encourage you to check out the 150th Anniversary website for a complete listing, including ticketing information. You’ll also find some trip planning tools.
