Today, we are commemorating the Gettysburg Civil War Cavalry Battle on our farm here at Battlefield Bed & Breakfast. The fighting on our property occurred during and slightly after Pickett’s Charge, also known as Longstreet’s Assault about two miles from the inn on the Emmitsburg Road.
Because the fighting here lasted longer than the infantry charge called Pickett’s charge, our property may have had the last gunshot of the Battle of Gettysburg, 156 years ago on this day, July 3.
If you are coming to Gettysburg for the Gettysburg Battle Reenactment, here is a map to the events and a schedule of the major battle reenactments.
