Lost and Found: Basil Biggs' Watch

February 27, 2023

Gettysburg National Military Park and the Gettysburg Foundation partner to present Museum Mondays. I am pleased to join Chief of Interpretation and Education Chris Gwinn to bring this popular series back for our viewers to connect the artifacts in the Gettysburg Museum of the American Civil War at the Gettysburg National Military Park Musem & Visitor Center to the battlefield and its stories.

Join us as we take a look at Basil Biggs' watch inside the musem. Basil Biggs' watch is just one of the numerous artifacts found in the museum.

You can also learn more about Basil Biggs' story in the virtual reality experience at the Gettysburg Lincoln Railroad StationTM, Ticket to the Past—Unforgettable Journeys when you explore Gettsburg with us.
