GETTYSBURG NPS 2017

Event Details

The 8th NJ Volunteer Infantry will be camped at Spangler's Spring for the weekend! Come out and learn a little about the life of the typical Union infantry soldier in the Army of the Potomac. We will be doing daily demonstrations for the Park Service in Spangler's Meadow including some light drill and firing. Visitors are also welcome to visit our camp to learn about the day to day of a soldier and to ask all the questions they can think of! Feel free to invite anyone you wish to help us get the word out. Our annual trip from New Jersey to volunteer at Gettysburg is one of the things we love the most about what we do!
