My first time to Gettysburg and am very interested in what is offered at the program. I will be coming from a Road Scholar program in Shenandoah National Park. Will have driven from Appleton, WI.

Does anyone want to share a ride from NY (or elsewhere en route) to Gettysburg on October 5th? Thanks, Marty

Haven't been to Gettysburg since attending a Boy Scout Jamboree in the late 40s. Am very interested in American History, especially Civil War history, so am sure that much of what I see will trigger information picked up in my reading.

We are looking forward to this program. We've been to Gettysburg several time, but not as intensive as Road Scholar. We were at Antietam a year ago and it was excellent and other participants were welled schooled in Civil War Knowledge. Looking forward to meeting participants and learning from the presenters.
