George Spangler Farm Civil War Field Hospital

Event Subtemplate Image

The George Spangler Farm Civil War Field Hospital Site is the best surviving example of a farm used as a corps field hospital during the battle of Gettysburg. One minute, George Spangler and his family were working on their 80-acre farm. The next, the battle came to Gettysburg, and their thriving family farm was transformed into one of the largest field hospitals and artillery staging areas in the battle. The farm with living history programming is open to visitors Friday-Sunday in the summer months and accessible via shuttle from the Visitor Center.
