Battle of Gettysburg

The Battle of Gettysburg Research Center was developed in 2008 in order to meet the needs of patrons researching all aspects of the Gettysburg Campaign including combat operations during the campaign, the aftermath of the Battle of Gettysburg, Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, and anniversaries of the Battle of Gettysburg. The research center has been used by authors, historians, and Civil War buffs alike.
