The Most Famous Small Town in America

The 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.

From the Blog

You’ve probably heard by now, one of the most famous groundhogs In Pennsylvania has predicted an EARLY SPRING!  While, there is still time to enjoy all of the wonderful winter activities in and around the Gettysburg Area; here at #thegaslightinn, we couldn’t be happier. 

This all got me to thinking, where did Ground Hogs day come from anyway? The Editors at The Encyclopedia Britannica provided the answers to my curiosity.  Read all about Ground Hogs day on their website  at www.britannica.com/topic/Groundhog-Day.

Here are the top 5 things I found interesting.

1. February falls roughly halfway between the winter solstice and the spring equinox.

2. The lore of animals emerging from their hibernation to “see their shadow” dates back to the Middle-Ages.

3. German immigrants brought the lore to the United States, where in Pennsylvania the Ground Hog was substituted for the Badger.

4. Punxsutawny Phil started his career in 1887.

5. And possibly my favorite of all…  During Prohibition, Phil threatened to impose 60 weeks of winter on the community if he wasn’t permitted a drink. 🤣 (according to visitpa.com)
