State Theme: Preserving Valor

State Project: The 2013-2014 State Project will be to raise funds for the educational and interpretation program/system that will be installed in the restored field hospital at Spangler Farm to educate visitors on the suffering and heroism that occurred there 150 years ago.

“In great deeds, something abides….
….On great fields, something stays.”

           Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, the hero of Little Round Top, spoke these words at the 50th anniversary of the battle at Gettysburg.

This year will mark the 150th anniversary of the battle. This is a wonderful time for our society to participate in a restoration project associated with the battlefield.

The George Spangler farm is located just behind the Union lines at Cemetery Ridge.  This farm served as the 11th Corps Field Hospital during the battle.  Soldiers from both sides were treated here. Confederate General Lewis Armistead, who led his soldiers on Pickett’s Charge with his hat perched on his sword, died in the summer kitchen from complications of his injuries.

Until recently, this property was in private hands. When the farm came up for sale, it was purchased by the Gettysburg Foundation in order to preserve this important part of the battlefield. While the barn and summer kitchen changed very little over the years, the Gettysburg Foundation is working to restore the property to the way it looked in July 1863.

The Pennsylvania Society has agreed to assist the Gettysburg Foundation in this endeavor by raising funds for the educational and interpretation program/system that will be installed in the restored field hospital to educate visitors on the suffering and heroism that occurred there 150 years ago.

            To help raise the needed funds, State t-shirts and pins are available for $10 each. Contact your Senior Society President or the Senior State President to get yours! Ordering information is found at the bottom of this page.
