Dennis, You have quite an historical artifact there. In 1913 the surviving veterans of the two armies held a joint reunion at Gettysburgh. They put on demonstrations of camp life and old drills for the public. Lots of speeches were made emphasizing reconciliation. Then they held a reenactment of Picket's Charge. The Northerners got into the old positions atop Cemetary Hill and the Southernors got Into the Woods at its base. Then the rebels came out and started up giving a good rbel yell as they came. Watching them come up, a moan arose from the Union lines. The old veterans just couldn't watch it again. They stood stood up and came down, meeting the Confederates half way and everybody tearfully embraced. *PLEASE* email me about this. I would love to learn more about these items. Michael Montagne

How many returned to Gettysburg after the Battle of Gettysburg?

After the Civil War, the Grand Army of the Republic would hold reunions on the battlefield during the July 4th holiday. It was these reunions and the efforts of Daniel Sickles, (who commanded III corps and lost a leg during the battle) that Gettysburg became a National Battlefield. In 1913, on the 50th Anniversary of the Battle some 12,000 veterans Southern and Northern, pitched their tents on that hallowed ground. They were all old, but they came, drawn to the history that they had made. For many it was their last reunion. But the Reunions continued until 1946 when the last handful of veterans gathered to say adieu to their 140,000 comrades.
