How did families cope with being trapped in their cellars during the Battle of Gettysburg? What devastation awaited them when they emerged? Caught in the Crossfire uses eyewitness accounts and rare artifacts to give participants insight into what life was like for local civilians and serves as an excellent complement to the museum’s premier immersive experience.

Caught in the Crossfire is part of the 2023 Hands-On History Educational Programming Series.
