What interests me about the Civil War,Battle of Gettysburg is that it reminds me of my favorite U.S President Abraham Lincoln in which he delivered the famous Gettysburg address in which it honored the fallen and redefined the purpose of the war.

Wil says:

What interests me about the Civil War and the Battle of Gettysburg is that it always reminds me of the T.V show Pawn Stars. When people bring interesting civil war items like union or confederate uniforms, guns, cannons, bayonets and swords to the pawn shop and they tell the history behind it in which fascinates me a lot!

Wilson says:

Always wanted to see an reenactment of the Battle of Gettysburg Civil War and what interests me the most is how that particular war got so famous because of U.S President Abraham Lincoln addressing the war with his well known Gettysburg Address!

The civil war is the most defining conflict in our cultural history. Brother against brother. Out of all the wars, this would have changed america the most had the south won. Our daughter is at a perfect age to really enjoy the historical impact of this event.

We go to this every year! It ‘s awesome.The actors are great and time period is recreated perfectly. It’s the best way to get a history lesson. My kids love the food and the music and we hope to go again this year! :)

I am interested in seeing the Women of the Civil War. It such an interesting component of our nation’s history.

Linda S. says:

I have attended in the past myself. Found it to be a very interesting event. The re-enactment itself was a little confusing to me, and something happened with one of the cannons. Anyway, my 8th grade daughter asked if we could go so thought I’d enter and see how my luck goes. Please pick us!

Ron says:

I have lived in Fresno 33 years (OMG) and never been to this event, would like to go!

Our daughter is a junior in high school and wants to major in history in college. Eventually becoming a professor. For her this is educational for us we just love to see her in her element. Watching her taking in all the culture is what it’s all about.
