Best thing I did in Gettysburg on the anniversary weekend of the Battle of Gettysburg. I can't imagine they don't charge for this performance, but only ask for donations. I'm not sure how often performances occur, but the one I was there for was wonderful....More

You can't beat this for value and content. The Saturday night performance of the churches role in the battle is inspiring. The music, the actors, the content is all great. The cost is a donation of your choice.

Went to the Songs & Stories program on Saturday night. As I saw the people dressed up in Civil War era I'd figure it was a reenacment, so I said cool let's check it out, but basically all it was just a few church members...More
