Blue & Gray Re-enactment at Gettysburg
All conditions, additions and requests have been met and Freedom Township has finalized the special event permit for the 150th Commemoration and Reenactment of the Battle of Gettysburg, a Blue Gray Alliance event.
The Blue Gray Alliance re-enactment will bring to life Gettysburg during the war including large-scale, historically-accurate battles, speakers, music and vendors from June 27-30 at the Bushey Farm, 1845 Pumping Station Road, Gettysburg. The Brickhouse Inn B&B still has a few rooms available during this period.
During the four days, 8,000 to 10,000 reenactors from almost every reenacting organization in the country will deliver the major Gettysburg battles including McPherson’s Ridge, East Cemetery Hill, Culp’s Hill, Devil’s Den, Little Round Top, the Peach Orchard, the Wheatfield, Fairfield and East Cavalry Field cavalry battles, as well as Pickett’s Charge. Spectators will also find plenty of other activities including weapon demonstrations, interactive living history, fighting through the civilian-only “Town of Gettysburg,” food vendors, sutlers, historical lectures, period music, clothing demonstrations, period church services and a Civil War Ball.
Spectator tickets are $10 per person per day and children 12 and under are free. Advance spectator tickets are now available for purchase through the website www.bluegraygettysburg.com. Registration for reenactors is $20 and parking is free. For more information, visit www.bluegraygettysburg.com
