Flags of the First Day

In 2011, the Civil War Trust and the Conservation Fund saved 95 acres of the Gettysburg Battlefield - land that is closely associated with the First Day's fighting in Herbst Woods and McPherson's Ridge. This online exhibit was built to support that successful preservation effort.
