Gettysburg Battlefield Tour – New!

NEW! Gettysburg Battlefield Tour
1 session, 7 hours

 
 

The Battle of Gettysburg is considered one of the most important engagements of the Civil War. This visit to the Gettysburg National Military Park includes a short film that orients visitors to the battle and its place in the American Civil War. There will also be an opportunity to explore the on-site museum and view the breathtaking Cyclorama oil painting that immerses visitors into Pickett’s Charge. After lunch, the tour concludes with a 3-hour bus ride through the battlefield where a licensed guide will provide a vital cornerstone to the visitor experience. Tour includes museum entry fee, tour guide, and a boxed lunch. Be prepared for some light walking. The tour occasionally requires students to exit the bus to view monuments and features of the battlefield.

Note: No refunds after close of business on 6/13.

Instructor: Steve Slaughter has been a licensed Battlefield Guide at Gettysburg since 2008. He is a former Frederick County high school teacher having taught American history and sociology. He is also a Civil War reenactor and appeared in the movie “Gettysburg” as an extra.
