Helpful Hints

Arrive Early – at least 2 hours before battles begin. We recommend that you arrive early (gates open at 8:30 a.m.) and plan to spend the day. There is plenty to see and do all over the site. Traffic peaks just prior to the battle times and is also heavy after the battles (especially Pickett’s Charge). Try not to make any commitments in town or “off site” immediately following the battles. Anticipate delays and consider staying on site to relax and enjoy the live period music or stroll through the camps, sutler, and food areas following the battles.

Wear and bring sunscreen with you. Be sure to wear light-colored clothing, hats, comfortable shoes, sunglasses and sunscreen. Bring the bottle of sunscreen with you; it wears off after 2 hours. Early August is typically hot and sunny in Gettysburg.

Sun umbrellas may be used right up until the guns can be heard, marking the start of the reenactment. They must be lowered at that time.
