Region: Dutch Country Roads

This spring Reenactment and Living History event will feature The Battle of the First Manassas and an extensive Living History area for an all-around, all-day educational Civil War experience! The Reenactment will focus on what was learned by both armies during the first major battle of the American Civil War. Join us at the Historic Daniel Lady Farm to smell the gunpowder in the air, feel the ground rattle beneath your feet, and to experience firsthand, history coming to life before your very own eyes!

The Daniel Lady Farm, located along Hanover Road just outside of Gettysburg, was used by Major General Edward Johnson as a staging area for the Confederate attack on Culp’s Hill, as well as a Confederate Field Hospital during the battle. Tours of both the house and barn will be given during the 2021 event weekends. Guests can see the blood stained floors where soldiers were operated on in the house. Guests will also be able to see soldier’s initials in a door jamb of the barn, and a fragment of a Union cannonball lodged in a floor joist!
