"Remembering Mr.Lincoln"  with Myra Reichart  

Please join Myra Reichart as she presents: Remembering Mr. Lincoln - More than four months had passed since the armies had marched away from Gettysburg. The very fabric of the little community had been rent asunder-the lives of its citizens changed forever. November 1863 would bring a time for remembering and reflecting, for rededication and yes, even for celebrating. The President was coming to town! Join the citizens of Gettysburg as, amid their struggle to rebuild their shattered community and survive the coming winter, they pause to welcome the President and dedicate a cemetery to their fallen heroes.

This special program is included in the cost of regular Museum admission and is Free to Museum members.
