Join Licensed Battlefield Guide Therese Orr in the historic barn at the George Spangler Farm & Field Hospital for a special evening program on Col. Strong Vincent. Hear stories related to heroism on the famous hill. Several soldiers have been given the nickname of ‘hero of Little Round Top’ – some promoted as such more than others. Many of those soldiers, who will never be recognized, performed vital, heroic service on that hill. Discover Therese’s rationale for this citizen-soldier Col. Strong Vincent to be nicknamed one of those heroes.

The special program lasts approximately 90 minutes and is limited to 40 attendees. Tickets are available for purchase in advance online at or by calling Guest Relations at 877-874-2478. Ticket holders for this program may drive directly to the historic property located at 488 Blacksmith Shop Road, Gettysburg, and park on-site. The gate will open at 5:30 p.m. for ticket holders to explore original buildings from the battle and the grounds of the 80-acre historic site. The program will begin promptly at 6 p.m.
