WOMEN AT GETTYSBURG: GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY DEAD

Tuesday, April 9
1 – 2:30 pm
Susan Hynes, amateur historian and costumed historical interpreter, Presenter
On July 1, 1863, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, population 2,400, shed its small-town tranquility as the most famous battle in the entire Civil War began. For three days, war would rage in fields and orchards, with farmers and townspeople alike caught in the crosshairs. The town was forever changed. Nearly every home became a hospital. Many women of area continuously baked bread to feed hungry soldiers, most nursed the wounded, and some even buried the dead left on the field after the fighting was over. Learn about the work of these strong women and how one Gettysburg family formed a bond with the immortal Minnesota First Regiment.
