Great Online Resource for Civil War Buffs

Gettysburg National Military Park is the most visited Civil War park in America. The vast amount of interpretation done on a daily basis can outnumber that of smaller parks. During the winter months the staff at Gettysburg hosts a “Winter Lecture Series.” These lectures, hosted at the park cover all facets of the Civil War from battles, leaders, reconciliation, and memory.

During the sesquicentennial cycle these lectures have coincided with historical events taking place 150 years ago. Starting this year the park began to videotape these lectures and post them online.

Gettysburg’s YouTube Channel has over 100 videos. These include hour long Ranger programs and special events. For folks who cannot travel to Pennsylvania and experience the historical landscape in person, these videos are a great alternative. Specifically┬áduring this harsh winter.
