I have visited Gettysburg multiple times and have been to multiple Annual Reenactments. It is an amazing, profound experience. My son is a reenactor and has spent up to a week at a time, in character, sharing in one of the most meaningful trials in our Nation's history. It is a must-see experience.
Lots of hype. If you like live cannon booms. The final charge and the Armistead taking the center cannon was. The show. Free reinactments all over the park were just as good. Sales tents made it a festival. Good to expirience once but would not pay again. See reinactors at the park and you can talk with them to learn... 更多
The local reenactment of the battle of Gettysburg helps to bring this incredible battle to life. The re-enactors really get into their parts and give you a taste of what the battle looked like.
This was a real disappointment. It was very hard to see unless you paid extra to sit in the bleachers and the action was VERY slow. There were times when absolutely nothing happened for 15 to 20 minutes. We were told that a lot of the people used most of their ammunition the day before. We were there the 4th... 更多

As a 30 plus years as a Civil War reenactor, I can honestly say that this past year was the worst reenactment I have attended. I will NOT be returning to Gettysburg again. That is pretty sad since I have been coming here every year since 1968. First as a young boy, then as a young man, then as a... 更多
Was in Virginia when they have this reenactment and was able to attend the first day. They have several tent shows, lots of informative stations and exhibits and there was a mortar demonstration at noon time. One of the battle reenactment on the first day in the afternoon was also good. Recommend also to tour the battlefield area around as... 更多
My hat's off to the organizers and re-enactors who present this yearly event. The action is interesting and informative. The reenactment is narrated so you have a good feel for how the part of the battle you are watching relates to the total battle. Plan on a full day. There is some down time but this provides an opportunity to... 更多
