Tuesday, July 25th Evening Program     

“The Weikert Farm”  featuring LBG Bill Thomas

Ever wonder what lies up the dirt lane just across Wheatfield Road from Crawford Avenue?  This seldom visited part of the battlefield is the John Weikert farm, which played a role in the fighting in the Wheatfield and Houck’s Ridge, and was likely the site of action giving rise to no less than 6 of the 64 Medals of Honor awarded for action at Gettysburg.  Discover how Confederates guarding prisoners become prisoners themselves.  The area also saw the only combat by elements of the Union 6th Corps on July 2, 1863, as Wheaton’s / Nevin’s Brigade aided the Pennsylvania Reserves to turn back Wofford’s Georgians, as well as the capture and recapture of Union cannons. 

Meeting Place: We will begin at the 102nd PA monument down the John Weikert farm lane.  No traffic or parking is permitted on the farm lane.  Please park on the right side of Crawford Avenue with all four wheels on the road.

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