Program Description:
No college is better or more appropriately suited to offering exemplary programs focused on the American Civil War than Gettysburg, a college that is immersed in the history of the war era.

Civil War Era Studies offers courses in all aspects of the Civil War Era including military, social, intellectual and political history. It allows for a thorough understanding of the era.  The study of the battles, personalities and ideas which shaped our nation during the tumultuous years around the American Civil War extends deep into our college's history. The college's buildings and grounds were witness to one of the largest field hospitals on the battlefield, and its students in November of 1863 witnessed the speech made Abraham Lincoln in the National Cemetery.

Our students are afforded today with an equally rich experience, not only in our own town, but with the myriad research and study opportunities that are a stone's throw away from our campus.
