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.

Gettysburg Rocks

February 7 - 9

Gettysburg Rocks is the brainchild of local musician, music promoter and radio personality Rob Simon (aka Bald Rob). The original concept for this multiple venue festival in the town of Gettysburg was just an idea until Rob’s daughter Ashley approached him to help her with a fundraiser for Penn State Mont Alto’s THON group. During the course of an 11-week period the first Gettysburg Rocks event was planned, created and implemented and was an immediate success. The first event was held on the weekend of February 7th and 8th, 2014 and included 130 live bands across 12 venues in Gettysburg. The event raised over $14,000 for The Four Diamonds Fund. After the success of the first event, Rob was approached by several of the participating venues to create a warm weather version of the popular festival and the August event was created. Gettysburg Rocks is now a bi-annual music festival and fundraiser for Four Diamonds. Since the creation of Gettysburg Rocks the event has raised over $80,000 for Four Diamonds. This year's event will feature more than 160 performances at 14 venues over three days.

From the Blog

The Gaslight Inn in Gettysburg, PA prides itself on our support of our Veterans. Not only is our Innkeeper, Michael, a Veteran of the Marine Corps, we also have the pleasure of hosting many Veterans as our guests throughout the year.  So it makes these recognitions even more special. Thank you to all who have chosen to stay with us.

100 years ago, in November 1919, President Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day with the following words: “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…” On June 1, 1954, November 11th became a day to honor American veterans of all wars. Veterans Day continues to be observed on November 11, regardless of what day of the week on which it falls. The restoration of the observance of Veterans Day to November 11 not only preserves the historical significance of the date, but helps focus attention on the important purpose of Veterans Day: A celebration to honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. (va.gov)

Happy 100th Anniversary to the American Legion. The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization. Focusing on service to veterans, service-members and communities, the Legion evolved from a group of war-weary veterans of World War I into one of the most influential nonprofit groups in the United States.(legion.com). 

Please take time everyday to remember the sacrifices of and support our military heroes and families.
