Napoleon Power: The 1857 12-Pounder Gun-Howitzer at Gettysburg featuring LBG Ralph Siegel

The workhorse of Civil War artillery was the Napoleon cannon, which played a crucial role at many locations on this battlefield. Starting with Carter’s Battalion, guests will experience the combat positions of Stewart, Taylor, Bigelow, Kinzie and Rugg’s batteries. These guns were not only in the heart of the battle action, but they executed unique fire tactics. 

Meeting Place: Please meet at the Eternal Light Peace Memorial parking area where we will carpool for stops at Lee’s Headquarters, Longstreet Tower parking, Trostle Farm and Hunt Avenue. Carpooling is a MUST.  Each stop will have easy walks from the cars to the battery positions.  Whenever parking along NPS Avenues is required, park on one-way roads only and ensure all four wheels are on the pavement. 

Registration will be open until the day of the event.  Please register on our website as payment cannot be taken on the field.
