The Most Famous Small Town in AmericaThe Battle of Gettysburg was the turning point of the American Civil War. For three hot days in July 1863, our small Pennsylvania town was the scene of hard-fought battles, esteemed bravery and the bloodshed of 51,000 men.
With a much needed Union victory, many historians agree that it was on these hallowed grounds that our nation was saved, and deem the Battle of Gettysburg as the defining moment that changed the direction of the war and the morale of the nation. After nearly 150 years what happened in Gettysburg is not forgotten. We invite you to visit and walk in the footsteps of history.

The annual Gettysburg Brew Fest will enjoy its inaugural session Saturday, August 23rd— hosted by the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg. With spectacular views of the Gettysburg Battlefield and South Mountains, set against the backdrop of the new Seminary Ridge Museum — arguably one of most historic and recognizable structures in Gettysburg—the event will deliver a distinctive sampling experience.
Attendees will begin their experience with an impressive cannonade, then enjoy the finest craft beers and hard ciders ever assembled in Gettysburg! Following three-and-a-half hours of interacting with representatives from various breweries and enjoying camaraderie with their fellow “crafties,” attendees will be treated to a truly unforgettable experience one can only have in Gettysburg: the sounding of Taps from the Seminary Ridge Museum cupola by world-renown bugler, Jari Villanueva. Mr. Villanueva sounded Taps at Arlington National Cemetery over 5,000 times. He was also the lead bugler of the moving “Taps Tribute” during the 2013 Gettysburg Festival.
