Battle of Gettysburg Re-enactment :
The Battle of Gettysburg was the largest battle in the American Civil War. Over the course of three short days there were 45,000 casualties and 5000 horses perished. This re-enactment is one of the largest in the US - over 20,000 people actively participate, while tens of thousands watch.
Gettysburg is most famous for being the site of the bloodiest battle in the American Civil War, a battle widely seen as the turning point in the campaign. The battlefield site is now a National Military Park, and the town itself is also worth a visit. Founded in 1786, it has a number of historic buildings, including the Dobbin House Tavern, which, having been built in 1776, predates even the town itself.
