Saturday, March 11th, from 1 to 2 PM, 2nd Saturday Civil War Lecture at the ACFL&MH – Civilian Stories of the Battle of Gettysburg; with Speaker Evan Portman. While Union and Confederate armies engaged one another on the bloody fields of Gettysburg, the civilians of the town had a front row seat to one of the momentous events in American history. However in many ways, the civilian experience of the battle was less a front row seat, and more an active role. Much like the soldiers and generals, the civilians helped shape the outcome of the battle in their own indelible ways. Attend in Person in the Music Hall, or online:
