March Encounters with History
In Their Own Words with Licensed Battlefield Guide Darryl Roberts
This is a full-day indoor and outdoor program. An indoor lecture will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in the Ford Education Center in the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center, followed by an outdoor program from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Using diaries and other primary sources, we will trace the lives of several soldiers prior to their arrival in Gettysburg and participation in the Battle. During the afternoon program we will travel the battlefield and follow in their footsteps as they engaged in battle and hear first-hand accounts of what they experienced during this pivotal battle.
