Gettysburg...anyone been there on July 1st thru the 3rd?

Postby dave esmond » Fri Apr 24, 2009 1:22 pm


I'm planning a trip to Gettysburg in 2013 on July 1st for the 150th anniversary of the civil war battle.

My GGGrandfather Silas Fuller Dean was in the 8th Illinois cavalry and was part of the Union unit that fired the first shots at the battle of Gettysburg, I've seen a photo of him and some other members of the 8th Illinois standing at the first shot marker on the 50th anniversary and I'd like to be there on the 150th in his memory.

So I figure it's gonna be nuts given the 150th nature. But I'm wondering if anyone has been to Gettysburg on July 1-3 and can give me some tips for making it as pain free as possible.
