Gettysburg’s 150th named top event in United States 26 Sep 2012, 9:16 am
Gettysburg’s commemoration marks the 150thanniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, which occurred July 1-3, 1863 in the middle of the American Civil War. For three days, Union and Confederate troops clashed in the farmland and through the streets of the Pennsylvania town. In the end, there were 51,000 casualties and a community ravaged by war.
In summer 2013, the destination will mark the sesquicentennial anniversary with two re-enactments, living history encampments, an official Gettysburg National Military Park ceremony, a march across Pickett’s Charge and the opening of the Seminary Ridge Museum, among many other programs, tours and lectures during the 10 days that represent the“Reflections of History.”
Gettysburg and Adams County, however, are marking the anniversary throughout 2013, as new programs, events and attractions are expected to bring up to a million additional visitors over the course of the year. Nearby communities that will take part in this commemoration include Cashtown, Fairfield, Hunterstown and Hanover, as well as Union Mills, Md.
In addition to Gettysburg’s 150th Commemoration, ABA also selected Dedication Day – the Anniversary of the Gettysburg Address – as one of the top 100 events in North America for 2013. The day features a ceremony in the Soldiers’ National Cemetery to mark the 16thPresident’s famous speech in November 1863. Lincoln’s remarks secured not only his legacy in American history, but Gettysburg as a symbol of hope in the healing of the brutal battle just five months earlier.
