College mentioned in two Concord Monitor articles about visiting the battlefield

Gettysburg College's Civil War Institute was mentioned in a July 2 and 3 Concord Monitor article about visiting the battlefield.

From the Monitor:

Gettysburg was the decisive battle of the war. The Union victory there turned back the Confederate army’s last invasion of the war and crushed the Southern hope of independence at its highest point. The repulse of Pickett’s Charge was the bloody exclamation point of the Union victory.

As I walked the battlefield with my wife and friends during a recent six-day visit to Gettysburg, I learned from the terrain each time. But to follow the route of Pickett’s Charge, I joined a group from the Civil War Institute at Gettysburg College and had the good fortune to have Troy Harman, an experienced park ranger, as a guide.
