Students of the Battle of Gettysburg (and most of the books, past and present about the battle) address the military events leading up to and taking place on July 1-3, 1863.  "Civilians of Gettysburg" presents another point of view, in the first person, in period dress.  Lew Gage portrays Charlie McCurdy and presents a young boy's perspective.  Ginny Gage portrays Sarah Broadhead, a young woman at the time of the battle living with her husband and daughter.  Both roles are based on original diaries and reminiscences of civilians living in the town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, in the summer and fall of 1863.  Lew and Ginny will talk briefly about the demographics of the town in 1863, what it was like before, during, and after the famous battle.  For more information contact Barbara Krueger 569-6491.
