Gettysburg College is honored to join the country in commemorating the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War.
While the commemoration spans four years (2011-2015), 2013 is an important year for Gettysburg, marking the 150th anniversary of the enactment of the Emancipation Proclamation, the Battle of Gettysburg, and President Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address.
The College will sponsor events and programs throughout the commemoration, with a special focus on 2013.
Visit the Events page to see a full list of events on and off campus.
For Gettysburg College departments, programs, and individuals seeking funding for Sesquicentennial-related events or projects, please review the guidelines for submitting proposals to the Sesquicentennial Planning Committee.
