Second Saturday Series: "Vermonters at Gettysburg"
Saturday, July 13 at 2:00 p.m. at the Vermont History Center, 60 Washington Street, Barre
Using the Vermont Heritage Galleries as a backdrop, the Vermont Historical Society is hosting the Second Saturday Series monthly. See below for July's topic!
Within several weeks of serving its nine months of active duty, and having seen no combat, the Second Vermont Brigade found itself on the right flank of Pickett's Charge at Gettysburg with a chance to alter the course of the Civil War. On the same day, July 3, 1863, the First Vermont Cavalry Regiment was sent into a cauldron of death from which many Green Mountain Boys would never return. Come hear Paul Zeller share these stories of Vermonters and Vermont units at the battle of Gettysburg.
All Second Saturday talks are free with admission to the Vermont History Center.
