The Gettysburg Anniversary Committee looks forward to welcoming all reenactors from across the nation and around the world to the 150TH Gettysburg Anniversary National Civil War Battle Reenactment. After 18 years of working with and for reenactors, visitors and the community, we work every year to improve the event. As the 150TH Gettysburg event approaches we are listening to what you want in a national event of this size, and we plan to deliver! In addition to our overall excellent history of providing ample amenities such as wood, water, clean toilets, organized parking, security, traffic control, excellent 24 hour EMS, shower access, on-site shuttles and 24 hour fire protection, we have been working with commanders in the field to better accommodate requests for improved battle scenarios, authenticity standards, and providing an environment which fosters a memorable event for all involved. We understand the 150TH Gettysburg is highly anticipated by both reenactors, visitors and the community – so the bar has been raised extra high next year.
GAC & You
The Gettysburg Anniversary Committee understands the importance of reenactors’ participation and contributions to this event. Our yearly goal is to provide an enjoyable event with safe and excellent resources to you, the visitors and the community. With your help for all 18 years, GAC has donated thousands of dollars to various significant and worthy historic preservation and patriotic groups. The five 150TH Gettysburg Anniversary National Civil War Battle Reenactment beneficiaries will be: The Gettysburg Seminary Ridge Museum (Schmucker Hall), Adams County Historical Society, Marine Sgt. Eric McColley National Wreath Project, Land Conservancy of Adams County, Sachs Mill Covered Bridge Improvement Project. In the past we have supported groups such as Friends of the National Park is At Gettysburg, Civil War Trust, GNMP Cannon Restoration Fund, The National Trust for Preservation, brandy Station and The Daniel Lady Farm.
GAC will be donating $5 of every Reenactor Registration to this year’s five historic preservation and patriotic beneficiaries’.
