Citizens of Gettysburg watch as the Union and Confederate armies collide on the edge of their small Pennsylvania town. Over the next three days the very existence of the United States is at stake.   The town of Gettysburg, with a population of just 5,000 residents, will see the two armies, numbering over 150,000 men, fight it out amongst the hills, fields and in the town itself. The battle will decide the fate of the Nation.

“It had begun as an almost accidental collision between two armies, it had continued because of sheer force of circumstances made it impossible to break it off, and it was actually fought for the possession of control over the future of America.” *

The Civil War 150 Pinhole Project, witnessed this first set of these epic battles, but will be returning to Gettysburg this week for the remainder of the fighting and an extensive tour of the famous battlefield.
