Licensed Battlefield Guide Deb Novotny

is a retired American History Teacher from Gettysburg High School.

She is an expert on Evergreen Cemetery and the civilians buried there.

She has been a Licensed Battlefield Guide since 1975.



 It was a great honor to carry the flag for your regiment.  There are so many interesting stories involving the flags during the Battle of Gettysburg.  Join Licensed Battlefield Guide Deb Novotny as she shares some of the stories of the brave soldiers, both North and South, as they captured or defended the Flag.  Hear about the ruse of the 149th PA, the Railroad Cut 2nd MS, Sgt. Benjamin Crippen, W.F. Faucette, a flag captured and never returned, mending the flag staff during the fight, and many more stories.
