Gettysburg 2015 152nd Anniversary Battle Reenactment POSTPONED to August 7, 8, & 9 2015


Due to abnormal amounts of rainfall for the past month, and the significant rainfall and flooding the past three days, both event organizers and local emergency management officials have deemed it necessary to postpone the Annual Gettysburg Civil War Reenactment. The reenactment is held entirely on farm fields and requires a reasonable level of vehicle and pedestrian ingress/egress to responsibly provide for safety and necessary resources. Although it is usually dry and hot during this time of year, the consistent weather pattern for the past month has created difficulties for most outdoor related activities throughout the region. After storms and significant rainfall on Thursday and Saturday, as event organizers and community partners, the Gettysburg Anniversary Committee has no alternative but to postpone the event. The Gettysburg Anniversary Committee understands and is very sensitive to the disappointment and inconvenience that a postponement causes to visitors, reenactors and area businesses. It is also impacting to our staff as well. The Gettysburg Anniversary Committee is comprised of community members with a twenty-one year history of responsibly organizing this event. Our organizational history indicates a commitment to perform – if we are able to do it safely. Any advance ticket for the July 3-5, 2015 dates will be honored for any of the three postponement days on August 7, 8, & 9, 2015.

It happened on the 140th & 143rd.  That was a mess and parts of the farm still have ruts from that.  Fortunately, the event this year is not held on the that same farm but the one south of the town.  We're involved with it every year no matter which farm it's held at.

This town and it's road system is not capable of handling the amount of cars it does for beg events like this.
