Tue 17 7:30pm Educational Historic Gettysburg-Adams County Educational Speaker Program

"Camp Colt : Eisenhower and Gettysburg"

In 1918 Gettysburg hosted an Army training camp for the new tank Corp. An unknown young officer named Dwight Eisenhower was the Corp Commander. This was the beginning of a long and fruitful relationship between the town and the future General of the Allied Forces during World War II and his eventual rise to President of the United States . Historic GAR Hall
53 East Middle Street
Gettysburg, PA
17325
 
717-334-8312
But things at Camp Colt didn’t always go smoothly. Ike was faced with big challenges in preparing soldiers to go to war. His problems were not always military, however. Many were political.

Dave Weaver, licensed battlefield guide and Iraq veteran wrote his Master’s Thesis about Camp Colt and the Spanish Influenza pandemic, will be our June speaker as we remember a young Dwight Eisenhower and honor the 70th anniversary of the invasion of Normandy .

The GAR Hall is handicapped accessible. Speaker presentations are free to the public and no reservations are necessary. For more information call 717-334-8312 or go online.
