“Someday it will just stop, and I will be on the other shore.”: O.O. Howard and Gettysburg with Licensed Battlefield Guide Chuck Burkell
Two options available! This is a half-day outdoor program.
Many historians argue that the Army of the Potomac’s victory at Gettysburg is at least partially attributed to Major General and XI Corps Commander Oliver Otis Howard. Others find him, and his life of service, to be that of incompetence. Howard’s early life, his army experiences of over four decades, and roles within reconstruction will be discussed with a special focus on Howard’s post-war perspectives of the battle and his return visits to Gettysburg. This session will offer an examination of a complicated man to more fully understand his life, the era, and applications to the present.

The Rebel Attack that Almost Broke the Back of the Union Army with National Park Service Ranger Chuck Teague
Southern accounts spoke of the July 2nd action by the Georgians of Wright's Brigade as very successful, carrying the Federal position, driving the enemy from their entrenchments, gaining the very crest of Cemetery Ridge. Federal accounts, however, are mixed, some claiming the assault was of no account or easily thwarted. Yet other Northern perspectives describe the Rebels as overwhelming them, piercing the Federal line, well-nigh cutting the Army of the Potomac in two. What really did happen? This program will consider dozens of first-person accounts, various early histories and maps, and a close examination of the terrain in an effort to sort out the truth.
