On a Great Battlefield - Perspectives in Military History Roundtable
17 June 2017 - Dr. Jennifer Murray, Dr. Jared Peatman, Mr. John Heiser
As the blood dried on the fields around the crossroads town of Gettysburg in early July 1863, the American people did not fully realize the impact of the Civil War’s largest battle on the future of the American consciousness. Those 72 hours may be the most well-known in Civil War history, but the following century and a half has seen the battleground itself shift in shape, function, and interpretation at the hands of scholars, government officials, and the U.S. Army. The “hallowed ground” remains the most tangible reminder of the sacrifices made by the Civil War generation. On Saturday, June 17, 2017, Dr. Jennifer Murray will led this roundtable lecture at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. The lecture and roundtable discussion focused away from the battle itself, and toward the controversial, and often divisive, history and preservation of the fields and ridges those Soldiers died upon.
