The history came alive for me here, warm sunny day, all the volunteers are special to take time to participate. Very organized, no lines, good food, nice day
Enjoyed the whole experience...lots of tents set up to show how things were done on & around the battlefield. Everyone was friendly & willing to take time to fully explain what they did at that time. Spend the extra Zxx. $10.00 each for bleacher seats or take your own to sit on the bank and arrive early for the reenactment... 更多
We attended the 153rd anniversary of Picket's Charge as part of our Gettysburg weekend. We highly recommend this event. There are two battles, a mortar demostration/competition, period reenactors and history areas.

For this day there were 2 main events; the Custer calvary reenactment and a representation of part of Picket's charge. This was our first reenactment to attend. The first day... 更多

There is so much to see and do at the reenactments. We would recommend them to anyone. It shows you a small way of how the real battle went. There is a lot to do.
Our daughter was 10 years old when she went to her first Gettysburg reenactment and loved it. (She was already a history-lover.) This event makes the war come alive.
