Gettysburg College was mentioned as the place a mother-son duo stayed during the battle anniversary in a July 10 Pittsburgh Tribune-Review article.
From the Tribune-Review.
On this trip, the Splendores stayed at Gettysburg College, which once offered its main buildings as makeshift hospital wards for those wounded in the battle.
They explored a “Living History” encampment and activities tents, witnessed field demonstrations and observed the full-scale re-enactment of the battle.
The Splendores said seeing the battlefields and imagining the carnage and heroism that once took place was one thing, but witnessing the re-enactment was another.
