Most people see the town of Gettysburg as the site of the one of the bloodiest battles in American History. However, the town of Gettysburg had a rich cultural history long before the soldiers wearing blue and grey swept through its streets. The purpose of this blog is to examine and follow the cultural evolution of the town of Gettysburg from the time of the Iroquois, through the Civil War, and the 150 years following. Did you know that the land in this area was purchased from the Iroquois? Or that Gettysburg itself was a melting pot of nationalities? We hope that we can help you to learn about the cultural landscape of the town of Gettysburg as we ourselves learn along the way.
