Debris of Battle
From canteens and belt buckles to bullets and artillery shells, authentic objects found in and around Gettysburg form the backbone of this hands-on program. Wearing white gloves, participants will have the opportunity to handle original Civil War artifacts and learn about the aftermath of the Battle of Gettysburg, including how area residents faced the dangers of gathering and selling these remarkable artifacts to early tourists.
Debris of Battle is part of the 2023 Hands-On History Educational Programming Series. This event is free and open to the public.
