Battle lines formed near Gettysburg, PA in what turned out to be one of the Civil War's most crucial battles. Lee's forces were denied in \Pickett's Charge on the center of the Union line. With Lee's forces retreating back to Virginia this was one of the Civil War's most deadly battles with the loss of over 50,000 casualties.

Over these four days, soldier and civilian re-enactors will re-create the 1860s, through battles, encampments and demonstrations. Visitors can get an up-close look at cavalry, artillery and the lives that soldiers led during the Civil War.
