Plan Your Gettysburg Trip


August 24th

Summer Symposium – A Century of Memory

Throughout the day, we will examine the Gettysburg reunions that veterans of both armies attended in 1869, 1888, 1913, and 1938, and the centennial commemoration in 1963. Explore how these gatherings shaped post-war reconciliation, memorialization, and collective memory in American History. The event will uncover the complex narratives of reunion and remembrance that continue to resonate today.

We are excited to welcome historians Dr. Jill Titus, John Heiser, Dr. Jennifer Murray, Dr. Stephen Goldman, and Peter Miele as they join SRMEC Director of Education and Interpretation Codie Eash.

Included with your in-person registration is light breakfast, catered lunch, book signing opportunity, admission to Seminary Ridge Museum, and a guided tour of the historic Cupola.
