When: Thu., Dec. 19, 7-9 p.m. 2019

Ron Gabriele will present a program titled “The Second Battle Gettysburg - 1913” which tells the story of the 50th Anniversary Commemoration of the original battle of Gettysburg which took place July 1-3, 1863. The program will examine how it took four years to plan the commemoration event; the obstacles of organizing the event including how they would transport 54,000 aging veterans from every state to the remote hamlet of Gettysburg; how the U.S Army fed everyone at the event; what the veterans did during the event and the news coverage of the event at the time.
