Enjoyed the whole experience...lots of tents set up to show how things were done on & around the battlefield. Everyone was friendly & willing to take time to fully explain what they did at that time. Spend the extra Zxx. $10.00 each for bleacher seats...More

We attended the 153rd anniversary of Picket's Charge as part of our Gettysburg weekend. We highly recommend this event. There are two battles, a mortar demostration/competition, period reenactors and history areas. There are many people like morticians, doctors, cooks all telling the tale of how...More

There is so much to see and do at the reenactments. We would recommend them to anyone. It shows you a small way of how the real battle went. There is a lot to do.

Our daughter was 10 years old when she went to her first Gettysburg reenactment and loved it. (She was already a history-lover.) This event makes the war come alive.

I thought this was a good reenactment and I'm glad we spent the time and money to attend. We only went to day 3 for Pickett's Charge. My two sons enjoyed it. The costumes, guns, and cannons were very realistic.
