Artillery Demonstrations at Lee’s Headquarters
June 25, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
During the Battle of Gettysburg, this small stone house — home of 69-year-old widow Mary Thompson — served as the headquarters of Gen. Robert E. Lee. The property surrounding the house played a pivotal role in the severe fighting on July 1, 1863, and was a key position in the Confederate line for the rest of the engagement.
Today, the landscape and building have been preserved and restored to their wartime appearance by the American Battlefield Trust.
Open House on Saturday, 10 am – 3pm. Union artillery demonstrations will take place at 11 am, 1 pm and 3 pm both days.
