 September 17:  "THE PARALLELS OF THE BATTLE OF GETTYSBURG AND THE EVENTS OF 9/11, AN HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE"  

 

The Battle of Gettysburg produced the highest number of causalities and was the turning point in the American Civil War.  9/11 claimed the largest loss of life from a foreign attack on American soil and has defined and shaped our response to terrorism to this day.  Additional accounts from both civilians and participants, a "first person narrative," have helped us to both learn and understand the factual details of both events. 

Presenter, Ken Zaveckas, has a unique perspective on both events, in that in Ken's earlier life as a former history teacher, "Gettysburg" was his first practicum.

On 9/11, he was a Chief Officer serving with the New York City Fire Department (FDNY) and participated in the rescue and recovery operations.    

 


 

The HGAC educational speaker programs are held

in the handicapped accessible historic Grand Army of the Republic Hall (G.A.R.)

 

Doors open at 7 PM with the event begining at 7:30 PM.

 

These free, no reservations needed evenings, are held the third Tuesday evening of March, April, May, June, August, September, and October at 53 E. Middle Street, Gettysburg.
