Vlog: Reimagining Gettysburg

Levi Shafer's Forage Cap

April 10, 2023

Thank you for joining us for another installment of Museum Monday.

Join Chief of Interpretation and Education Chris Gwinn and me as we take a look at Levi Shafer's forage cap photographs in the Gettysburg Museum of the American Civil War at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center.

After seeing this artifact in person when you explore the museum, then drive to the site of the Wisler House to connect to the story on the battlefield, or request this story during your car tour with a Licensed Battlefield Guide. Guided car tours can be reserved by calling our Guest Relations team, 877-874-2478 or 717-334-2436.
