York CWRT members tour Gettysburg with Scott Hartwig

Kathy Friel and other members of the York CWRT listen to the description of what happened on the site on July 2, 1863, during the Battle of Gettysburg.
Kim Shayda of the York Civil War Round Table was among the battlefield trampers on Saturday, November 1st, who accompanied Gettysburg National Military Park interpretive ranger Scott Hartwig on a battlewalk of the Stony Hill and Wheatfield.

Trampers enjoyed a 3-hour battlewalk on a gorgeous, warm autumn afternoon.

Veteran park ranger Scott Hartwig points out the movements of the opposing troops during the Confederate assault on the Union III Corps’ line east of the Emmitsburg Road.

CWRT members study their maps and handouts as they intently listen to Scott Hartwig.

The York CWRT met with another Round Table (the Mahoning Valley CWRT from Youngstown in my native state of Ohio) for joint fellowship and discussion. The flag is a reproduction of a Civil War-era American flag for a Pennsylvania regiment.
