Autumn has arrived in Gettysburg. At The Gettysburg Experience
, we enjoy bringing you another issue of historic articles, delicious fall recipes, and our updated Calendar of Events
. October has much to offer, from the annual Apple Harvest Festival to the Halloween parade and the Autumn Civil War Militaria Show. The Calendar
begins on page 11.
If you don’t know what a tippling house is (I didn’t) you’ll find out in our article about The Black Horse Tavern , beginning on page 25. One of Gettysburg’s most colorful and indispensable generals is studied in General Winfield Scott Hancock: “His Fame is Secure”, beginning on page 43. An interesting anniversary will be commemorated on Halloween this year. Learn about what transpired half a millennium ago in 500 Years Ago: An Historic Reminder , that starts on page 61. And, for those who enjoy a happy ending – there aren’t too many of those when studying the Battle of Gettysburg – read about The Story of Ned , found on page 65.
We have Trivia Questions to test your knowledge and memory, at the bottom of every odd-numbered page (except for the center, where our Map of Gettysburg is found). A hint: Read the articles first! Answers are found on page 69.
We also offer for your convenience an Advertisers’ Directory on page 70. We appreciate our many advertisers – we receive no other funding, so without them this magazine would not be possible. We shop at their establishments too, and can highly recommend them.
Thank you for choosing The Gettysburg Experience , part of historic Gettysburg for two decades and counting.
