Join us in Gettysburg, Pa., for three days of instruction in the classroom and on the battlefield of the Civil War's bloodiest clash of arms, with more than 51,000 casualties. Walk Pickett's Charge and visit Little Round Top, Devils Den, the Peach Orchard, Cemetery Ridge and other excursions by motorcoach guided by leading historians of the era. Due to recent terrain restoration efforts, we now can see the battlefield the way Generals Lee and Meade saw it during the intense fighting.
This Civil War battlefield Tour is led by Carol Reardon, Penn State's George Winfree Professor of American History, a scholar-in-residence of the George and Ann Richards Civil War Era Center, and author of the award-winning book, Pickett's Charge in History and Memory.
