Vlog: Reimagining Gettysburg

Gettysburg As A Place

September 30, 2019

In remarks to several hundred county commissioners from all across Pennsylvania, gathered at our Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center for dinner, I spent time reflecting on 'Gettysburg as a place': tying Americans to their ancestors, honoring veterans of all our wars, inspiring creativity by artists, showcasing sustainability, representing an era of history, and symbolizing unselfishness.

Reimagine Gettysburg as a place where Americans visit for reasons historical and contemporary.
