Beyond Civil War and Lincoln: Race, Community, and Memory in Gettysburg
Join Alumni Park Ranger John Rudy '07 as he shares history not often explored about the town of Gettyburg!
Gettysburg is best known for 1863. But the battle for Gettysburg's meaning has lasted much longer. Gettysburg's black community has been constantly fighting for equality and voice: for voting rights in the 1870s, against racist militiamen in the 1910s, versus Klansmen in the 1920s, or to challenge segregation in the 1950s and 1960s. Come explore how long the battle for memory has been raging.
