  Color Bearer Tour —
Gettysburg’s Aftermath in 4-D: The Rose Farm
(Thursday Only)

Historians: Garry Adelman and Tim Smith

Description: Within days of the battle, Alexander Gardner and his crew recorded more photographs of the Civil War’s human toll than any other photographer secured at any other battlefield of the war. More than 35% of all known photos of Civil War dead were taken by Gardner’s crew at Gettysburg. Of all the places at Gettysburg, more fallen were recorded on the Rose Farm than at any other site, making it a sad but appropriate place to visualize the horror of Gettysburg’s aftermath. Join Garry Adelman and Tim Smith for a four-dimensional experience like none other—or, as author William A. Frassanito calls it, a Journey in Time.
