Ñ Civil War Veterans Reenact Pickett’s Charge at the 1913 Gettysburg Reunion-July 3, 1913: Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The Battle of Gettysburg was fought between July 1-3 in 1863
The events of the war, and the men of the war, are fast fading from the public attention. Its history is growing to be an “Old, Old Story.” Public interest is weakening day by day. The memory of march, and camp, and battle-field, of the long and manly endurance, of the superb and uncomplaining courage, of the mass of sacrifice that redeemed the Nation, is fast dying out. Those who rejoice in the liberty and peace secured by the soldier’s suffering and privation, accept the benefits, but deny or forget the benefactor-1877 National Tribune
