At a Glance

The stories of the soldiers who fought at the Battle of Gettysburg have been written about in thousands of books, but those of the women are not as well known. Join us at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday, March 31, 2021 to celebrate Women’s History Month with Deb Novotny, the fourth woman to become a Licensed Battlefield Guide, as she shares stories of some of the women — North and South, town residents and those from far-away — who were involved in the battle and its aftermath.
