Yes we have a famous battlefield to tour by car, bicycle, horseback, and even on foot but we boast a wealth of activities beyond those historic acres.
With adventures to suit every budget, Gettysburg and Adams County businesses offer plenty of packages to help visitors create their dream vacations.
Two days of special events commemorate Civil War history at the actual encampment sites of J.E.B. Stuart’s Cavalry and Sykes’ Union V Corps. Cavalry, Infantry and Artillery drills, living history and skirmishes as visitors get a front row view of Civil War military forces and the effect on civilians at the Union Mills Homestead, where both Union and Confederate forces rested before the decisive battle at Gettysburg.
Admission to the park is $10 a car, which includes all the living history, reenactments, presentations and walk-through tours of the house and mill.
On Saturday evening from 7-9pm we will be holding a Civil War Dance.
