Codie Eash, Director of Education and Museum Operations at Seminary Ridge Museum and Education Center in Gettysburg, will kick off HistOric Gettysburg Adams County’s Free series on April 19 with a lecture entitled: “It Is All My Fault” – Robert E. Lee’s Gettysburg Legacy.”
Although he was only at Gettysburg for the better part of four days in July 1863, Robert E. Lee’s presence in Adams County has lingered in United States military history and memory. Eash will offer an analysis of the monuments, speeches, soldiers’ recollections and the art, film and public interpretations that have influenced our collective thinking concerning Lee’s legacy at American’s most famous battlefield.
