From the first event in 1995, The Gettysburg Anniversary Committee events have always featured some of the best living history at any civil war reenactment. This year a Youth Activities Tent, is being added to the living history smorgasbord. An array of activities at this tent will include enlistment, life and equipment of a young soldier, medical, music, drilling, a civil war art contest and honorable discharge. The Gettysburg Anniversary Committee, in partnership with the Gettysburg Times News In Education initiative, have given complimentary passes to all students K-8 in Adams County in hopes of making American History available to more children.
Besides the new Youth Activities Tent, the always popular Live mortar Fire demonstrations – complete with explosions at the end will take place each day. There will be field demonstrations, a Living History Village and continuous programs in two large Living History Activities Tents that include ladies period dress, civil war music, presentations by the Generals, period religious services and several civil war weddings.
Living History Coordinator Kirk Davis has been leading the living history portion of the annual event for many years and does an excellent job orchestrating one of the best living history programs of any civil war reenactment in the nation.

Reenactors, visitors and staff all love this site that sits beside GNMP, with its pastoral terrain and magnificent views that overlook the historic Sachs Mill Covered Bridge, the Eisenhower National Historic Site and The Roundtops. This will be an event that allows both reenactors and staff to take more time to enjoy the smaller interesting scenarios, the beautiful surroundings, campfire chats and camaraderie.
