Gettysburg with Mike McKinley

Thursday, November 6 at 7 PM

In July 1863, over 150,000 Union and Confederate soldiers converged on the small crossroads town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. From July 1-3 General Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia and General George G. Meade’s Army of the Potomac clashed there in what was to become the greatest battle ever fought on North American soil. Mike McKinley, an independent historian and lecturer, will present the battle through the personal accounts and human interest stories of the soldiers and civilians – men, women and children who participated in or witnessed the events of those three memorable days. The program will also highlight Lee’s retreat, how Gettysburg citizens coped with the terrible aftermath of battle and Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address.
