Visitors to the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center have an opportunity to see and learn about the original weapons used in the Civil War in the Guns of Gettysburg display on Saturday, May 25, 2019 in the Group Lobby from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The display, allowing close examination of the artifacts and light handling by visitors, will include:
Historians in period attire will explain the weapons and some of the technology of the war, including various breechloaders, the Maynard tape and pellet priming systems, and pinfire and rimfire cartridges.
