NORMANDY: Battle for the French Countryside
October 23 @ 9:00 am
One event on October 24, 2021 at 3:00 pm
Join us to experience a battle reenactment and living history on the hallowed grounds of the Daniel Lady Farm, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The Gettysburg Battlefield Preservation Association’s 146 acres borders the Gettysburg National Military Park at Benner’s Hill. The farm was the site of the CSA artillery emplacements and infantry preparation for the Confederate attack on Culp’s Hill. The house and barn became the 2nd Corps, 2nd Division field hospital. Shell fragments and soldiers’ carved initials are preserved in the barn and blood-stained floors in the house.
With all events this year, much effort is going into meeting Pennsylvania State Covid requirements and keeping our guests’ visits safe and enjoyable! It is our intent to hold a ‘Living History’ and ‘Skirmish’ should we have enough participants. Armor and Mech are welcome to attend along with other WWII impressions that meet NPS standards. As the GBPA is not part of the NPS, we allow blank firing for demonstrations at prescribed points and times along with the skirmish.
Participants must be part of a unit that is planning to attend. Unit commanders will be held accountable for safety within their units.
All fees collected go to the preservation of the Daniel Lady Farm Historic Site!
