The Battle of Gettysburg

Join us on a virtual tour of Gettysburg Battlefield. This photographs were taken by Linda Walcroft on a tour of this famous Civil War battlefield that was part of a history course offered by Northern Virginia Community College. Our leader was Professor Charles P. Poland.

The battle took place July 1st-3rd, 1863. Robert E. Lee had brought the Army of Northern Virginia into Pennsylvania hoping for a victory on Union soil. He was not planning to fight at Gettysburg, but once the battle started, it built up into a bloody confrontation that took many casualties.

Much of the battlefield has been preserved as a National Military Site. Monuments and tourists are everywhere. The landscape retains it's hilly topography and many of the landmarks are little changed since the battle.
