From the NY Times:

Gettysburg 150th, Pennsylvania The Gettysburg 150th anniversary commemoration will observe the Battle of Gettysburg for 10 days from June 28 through July 7 in Gettysburg, Pa. Some 400 events focused on the Civil War are on the schedule: battle re-enactments featuring horse-drawn cannons and cavalrymen on horseback, soldier encampments, living history programs and special tours and exhibitions, including the opening of the Seminary Ridge Museum. Visitors can walk in the footsteps of Confederate soldiers in the mile-long Pickett’s Charge Commemorative March, led by National Park rangers representing each of the assaulting brigades. Gettysburg College is showing a 15-minute film about the Gettysburg Address throughout the summer, and offering Witness to History, a historical walking tour app of the college and town, both free.
