Gettysburg Tours, Inc has partnered with the expert guides of Tigrett Leadership Academy to offer a brand new tour showcasing a different side of Gettysburg military history. Ride along and take a look at the people and places that played a part in the Allied victory in World War II. You will visit a prisoner-of-war camp. Learn why an intelligence camp was located here, training specialized troops for psychological warfare.
Hear stories of the navy’s map-making operation preparing for the invasion of Japan, and consider the scrap drive that almost took some of the battlefield’s most famous monuments. Find out what sacrifices Gettysburg’s citizens made to help the war effort.
Thrifty visitors, take note! The existence of our winter combo tours seems to be one of the (unintentionally) best kept secrets in Gettysburg. These ghostly adventures are offered on Saturday nights during the winter season (with two special Sunday options and one Friday option), and beware: when space fills up – they’re gone!
The exciting news, if you’re reading this in early January, is that the season has only just begun. For 2019 these special combo tours are offered on Saturdays starting January 12 at 7:00 PM, and they run all the way through March 16 (weather permitting). The Sunday options for these tours are January 20 and February 17 and the Friday option is February 15. Please note, Ghostly Images is only open Saturdays from 3:00 PM until the time of the tour.
Why do we call them combo tours?
Jennie Wade House will be open Saturday, February 16th and Sunday, February 17th (weather permitting). 10 AM – 4 PM.
When you think about the Battle of Gettysburg, who comes to mind? Probably George G. Meade, the Union general who led the Army of the Potomac to victory after a three-day invasion. Possibly George Custer, the charismatic “Boy General” who may have singlehandedly led the turning point of the Civil War.
But what about the leaders who flew under the radar to help lead the Union troops to victory? One such man is Brigadier General David M. Gregg, who quietly aided some of the revered generals responsible for the Union victory and thus the state of the country as we know it.
If your company or large group is planning a trip, let Gettysburg Group Reservations put together the experience of a lifetime for you! Our charter services go far beyond the hallowed grounds of Gettysburg and can offer transportation to nearby tourist hubs such as Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, or Washington D.C.
Charter bus transportation is a great option for a variety of groups; schools, businesses, tour groups, and even large extended families can enjoy easy, reliable transportation to your exciting destination. But what are some of the benefits you may not have even thought of?
Leon Reed, author of “Stories the Monuments Tell”, will be doing a book signing on Saturday, December 1st (10 AM – 1 PM). Stop by The Jennie Wade House, 548 Baltimore Street, Gettysburg, PA 17325 and check it out.
