This Living History Event will feature the Axis and Allies of World War II. Enjoy a full weekend of WWII living history events, including a daily skirmish! Visitors can experience the different camps, learn about the uniforms, explore vehicles and equipment, learn about the little-known cavalry that still existed on horseback, and even catch a skirmish! 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!
