A Civil War Trust Generations Event
Bring someone at least one generation younger — your child, grandchild, or friend — for a FREE event, as part of our Civil War Trust Generations program.
The struggle between Union and Confederate soldiers on the slopes of Little Round Top at Gettysburg is among the most famous fights of the Civil War. Back and forth swayed the fortunes of both sides amidst giant boulders and wild terrain that lent the fighting a particularly brutal character. Share your passion for history with your child, niece, grandson or friends for this special “Generations” event, sponsored by the Civil War Trust and the National Park Service.
Choose to be a member of the 20th Maine of the 15th Alabama regiment; charge or defend the hill while we replicate the movements of our ancestors at the very place they performed their heroic deeds. Some lucky kids will even get to don the uniforms of their choice! As always, our "Cadet Conference" format employs hands-on activities and stresses teamwork, leadership, ethics and responsibility lessons as the fighting, photos and fascinating evolution of Little Round Top comes to life.
- Registration is required.
- The event is FREE and open to all who brings someone from another generation.
- Please wear appropriate footwear and be prepared for inclement weather.
