“A focus on Lincoln’s Role as Commander-in-Chief”

Acknowledging that this year marks the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg as well of the Gettysburg Address. President Lincoln’s role in the epic conflict is greatly overshadowed by his address given four months after the battle. But the decisions Lincoln made as Commander-in-Chief ultimately assured a Union victory.

Gettysburg Final Measure of Devotion, the commemorative film of the 150th Gettysburg Anniversary will follow the Lincoln narrative. In late June 1863, with the Confederates already on Pennsylvania soil, Lincoln fired his General in charge of the Army of the Potomac, the army charged with beating back the invasion. And just three days prior to the start of the epic clash Lincoln installed General George Meade who viewed the appointment as end of his military career. The film, along with the incredible action and visual spectacle of the 150th Anniversary Gettysburg National Civil War Reenactment will feature the foremost Lincoln scholars in the country including two-time Lincoln Prize recipient, Dr. Allen Guelzo of Gettysburg College. These historians will provide depth and insight into Lincoln’s role and Gettysburg’s honored place in American history.

Gettysburg Event Wraps

After years of work the Gettysburg 150th National Civil War Battle Reenactment is now a memory. I was just reading the the Chief of Police in Gettysburg reported NO arrests, none in the 10 day period associated with the anniversary celebration and reenactment. That is amazing.

And the weather held until the very last moment at the close of Pickett's Charge when the the heavens opened up and the rains came - just as they did at the real battle 150 years ago.

The Battlecast has the full 2-hour program of the preshow, presentations and Pickett's Charge. If you did not see it live you can watch the whole event again by subscribing at

Below are just some of the tens of thousands of photos taken at the event - and these are of my hard working crew.
