Historian: John Hoptak
Description: It is the costliest and most famous of all American battles with some of the most iconic of all Civil War place names—McPherson’s Ridge, Cemetery Hill, Little Round Top, the Wheatfield and Pickett’s Charge, to name a few. Gettysburg also had the many of the best known generals on both sides—Lee, Meade, Longstreet, Hancock, Sickles, Stuart and 114 more! Employing an overview approach but with enough details for the staunchest Gettysburg buff, this tour will bring the places, characters and battle movements together in one. Expect short walks of up to 100 yards at a time.
