“The long shadow of Jubal Early” featuring LBG Rob Abbott
Cranky, angry, misogynist, profane…Lee’s “bad old man.” Major General Jubal Early. Who is this guy? Join LBG Rob Abbott as we follow Early’s Division as they pass through Gettysburg on 26 June and then return to fight on both the 1st and 2nd of July 1863. The discussion will center on how Jubal Early’s actions influence not only the opening of the battle, but the way the entire war is interpreted. We will begin at the 26 PA Emergency Militia and then move to Barlow’s Knoll to discuss 1 July. Finally, we will park at East Cemetery Hill to discuss the Evening 2 July CSA Attack.
Meeting Place: Parking lot of the Dollar General (2 Springs Ave) across from the 26 Emergency Militia Statue.
Registration will be open until the day of the event. Please register on our website as payment cannot be taken on the field.
