Statue of General Warren standing on Little Round Top overlooking Devil's Den, Gettysburg National Military Park (Andrew N Dierks)

Gettysburg endures. Whether they wore blue or gray, Americans fought each other to an outcome that continues to shape the nation today. From the boulders of Devil's Den to the heights of Little Round Top, through the Peach Orchard to the Wheat Field, or across Seminary Ridge to Cemetery Ridge, Gettysburg is a place where valor mixed with death.

To experience the essence of this three-day battle, join historian Gregg Clemmer as he explores and explains the most iconic fight of our Civil War in a full-day excursion. Walk the fields of Pickett's Charge, view the deadly challenges of Culp's Hill, and imagine the horrors of Iverson's Pits. Stops at McPherson's Woods, Spangler's Spring, and the High Water Mark bring to life the history that happened here. Conclude the day on the spot where Lincoln addressed America’s future. Lunch is included at a local restaurant.

Fringe stop at about 8:55 a.m.

Dress appropriately for battlefield walks.
