Secession: The Conception, Birth and Infancy of the Confederate States of America with Licensed Battlefield Guide Therese Orr
This is a full-day indoor and outdoor program. A 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 hour lunch and an outdoor easy walking program from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. How did this “new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal” become divided? Join Licensed Battlefield Guide Therese Orr to explore the causes of secession; examine the constitutional documents of the eleven Confederate states; and discuss the early period of the Confederate States of America government. From modern to magnificent, the eleven Confederate state monuments at Gettysburg are a memorial to the men who fought for the South. In the afternoon, we will travel Confederate Avenue and discover the history behind each monument.
