Living History - Gettysburg

The 71st Pennsylvania is privileged and honored to participate in the Gettysburg National Military Park living history program. Only select Civil War reenactment units are chosen to be a part of this prestigious group of living historians. The purpose of the living history program is to enhance the experience of the visitors with the sites and sounds of real Civil War military drill and camp life.

During one weekend per season, the 71st PA sets up an authentic military encampment and perform scheduled military and civilian demonstrations to the visitors of Gettysburg National Military Park. We have held encampment living history weekends at the Pennsylvania Memorial and at Spangler’s Spring near Culp’s Hill.

This experience is one of the highlights of our schedule each year. The original 71st Pennsylvania took part in the furious 3-day battle of Gettysburg. They defended the “Angle” during the repulse of “Pickett’s Charge”. There is no better way for us to honor and remember the brave men who fought and died on that very field.

Wouldn’t you like to experience this great honor with us?
