The Historic Daniel Lady Farm comes alive with Reenactors and Living Historians as the GBPA presents this 160th Gettysburg Battle Anniversary event.
This three-day event honors and remembers those who sacrificed each day of this significant clash.
Bleacher seating is being added to the battlefield viewing area. The general public does not participate in the battle.
Spectator tickets purchase coming soon. Registration is currently for reenactors and living historians
Visit the Military camps and see how a soldier lived while moving from skirmish to skirmish.
The Living History Village features Living Historians happy to talk about everything from how families managed without their father or husband to early embalming methods.
See the Medical Museums in the Lady House and Barn to learn about Battlefield Medicine, surgery, and amputations. See the certified blood stains still on the floors and learn the stories they tell us.
Along with a large Speaker tent, there are two demonstration areas which allow for more detailed learning experiences. The Honorable Steven Reed area allows for larger demonstrations including how to fire a cannon and what sharpshooters did during the battle.
The Nancy Heller King area is focused on domestic studies, including what it took to run a household back then, and the skills a young lady was expected to learn in order to manage her own home. Needlework, hearth cooking, child rearing, gardening and more are presented next to the home Rebecca Lady took so much pride in.
Proceeds go towards the maintenance and upkeep of the Historic Daniel Lady Farm buildings and grounds. Your support of this hallowed ground is most appreciated.
