A Farm in Flames, a Marine Corps Exercise and Dwight Eisenhower: 159th Anniversary of Gettysburg
The battle of Gettysburg was fought in the yards, farm fields, and even the homes of civilians. One of those homes caught in the crossfire was the Bliss farm. The farm played a role in the famous battle, and was the setting of a World War I tank training ground, and home to a 1922 Marine Corps exercise and reenactment. #GettysburgTour
