GAR Event at Spangler’s Springs, Gettysburg NPS, October 23-25th, 2015

The first CAR Event was held at Spangler’s Springs, Gettysburg NPS, October 23-25th, 2015. This recreation living history G.A.R. Encampment held on The Gettysburg National Military Park, at Spangler’s Spring was excellent! Authenticity wise, it was one of the most perfect post Civil War exhibits I have ever seen! It was correct, down to using antique camp furniture and eating, drinking, cooking utensils, to making a special reproduction ribbon, (identical to G.A.R. originals). These boys did their homework. Everyone, including N.P.S. officials were very impressed. We look forward to next year’s G.A.R. Encampment here! Mike looked terrific as well as all the other boys! John Zaharias The Button Baron
