Project Gettysburg-León had its beginnings the early 1980's when Gettysburg College sponsored individual exploratory visits to Nicaragua in the midst of the highly publicized Sandinista-Contra conflict. This was followed by more educational group trips. After seeing the effects of US intervention, observing the immense poverty and being challenged by the tenets of liberation theology, the group began to tell its story and encouraged more "solidarity trips." Over the last 25 years, multiple student and community groups have travelled to Nicaragua each year and León residents visit Adams County for education and friendship.
