Community in Crisis
A time of upheaval. Depleted resources. Weary workers. Pressure to move quickly. How would you lead?
For the 2,400 civilians of Gettysburg, the struggle does not end with the battle.
As the armies leave the area, they leave behind more than 50,000 casualties including 7,000 dead and 21,000 wounded soldiers.
The battle drained the town of resources creating a lasting crisis to which the town must respond. Walk through the Gettysburg streets for a discussion on the reactions of the individual citizens, area agencies and the government.
Lincoln as a Leader
With an invitation to deliver “a few appropriate remarks” at the dedication of the Gettysburg Soldiers' National Cemetery, President Lincoln seized the opportunity to encourage the nation to support his mission of change.
With it, he reminded his audience of the price of committing to the mission and the ultimate significance of achieving that goal: “that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom–and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
Follow along in the footsteps of this great leader from the Gettysburg Lincoln Railroad StationTM to the David Wills House and on to the Gettysburg Soldiers' National Cemetery while discussing the importance of leadership, change and mission.
