Gettysburg guide to present “Whose Hallowed Grounds’

November 1 @ 7:00 pm

Retired U.S. Army Colonel, Gettysburg Licensed Battlefield Guide, and Adams County cattleman Tom Vossler recounts the stories of the civilian population of the Gettysburg area in the battles’ aftermath. Focusing on the key tactical phases and places of the battle, and placing them in context with the terrain, he describes and illustrates many of the Gettysburg area farms and farm families before, during, and after the battle. He also recounts the landowners’ post-war battle with State and Federal governments for financial reimbursement for the hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage to livestock, property, and real estate sustained during the battle.
