We regret to inform you that due to exceedingly wet turf conditions and the pending weather forecast, it is necessary to postpone this weekend’s Gettysburg Reenactment. The Annual Gettysburg Battle Reenactment scheduled for July 3-4-5, 2015 has been reschedule for the rain date of August 7-8-9, 2015. Although this coming weekend may be nice – the ground is still too wet to be able to bring in the necessary resources like water tankers, porta-johns and the pumping trucks to service them, as well as all the other resources necessary for a safe and successful event. Both event organizers and local emergency management officials have deemed it necessary to postpone the Annual Gettysburg Civil War Reenactment.
The prospect of more rain with already saturated turf is also looming. The Gettysburg Anniversary Committee is unfortunately left with no alternative but to postpone the event to the announced date of August 7, 8, and 9. The G.A.C. understands and is very sensitive to the disappointment and inconvenience that postponement or cancellation causes to Reenactors, visitors and area businesses. We do hope you understand and we look forward to seeing you in August.
We have reopened Reenactor Registration so that those who were not able to register for the July event but want to come to the August event may do so. Go to www.gettysburgreenactment.com for registration information.
Reenactor Registration Still Open for the Rescheduled Reenactment August 7-8 & 9, 2015
The Gettysburg Anniversary Committee looks forward to welcoming reenactors to the Rescheduled 152nd Anniversary Gettysburg Civil War Battle Reenactment. We work every year to improve the event and 2015, even though smaller than the 150th, it will be a memorable and enjoyable event . In addition to our overall excellent history of providing ample amenities such as wood, water, clean toilets, organized parking, security, traffic control, excellent 24 hour EMS, shower access, on-site shuttles and 24 hour fire protection, we have been working with commanders in the field to better accommodate requests for improved battle scenarios, authenticity standards, and providing an environment which fosters a memorable event for all involved. We understand the 152nd Gettysburg is highly anticipated by both reenactors, visitors and the community – so the bar has been raised extra high again for this year’s rescheduled event. Printable registration forms are available online at www.gettysburgreenactment.com or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
