All Roads Lead to Gettysburg – “Too Much for Human Endurance”
At the Dietrich Theater in downtown Tunkhannock
Saturday, June 25 at 11 a.m.
Presented by Ron Kirkwood & Gary Tewksbury
Admission: Free
During this program, Tunkhannock resident Gary Tewksbury will share the events in and around the town of  Gettysburg on July 1st 1863, when the Union Army of the Potomac led by General Gordon Meade and the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia led by General Robert E. Lee fought for three long bloody days. With more than 50,000 estimated casualties, the three-day engagement was the bloodiest single battle of the conflict.  

Then Ron Kirkwood, author of Too Much for Human Endurance: The George Spangler Farm Hospitals and the Battle of Gettysburg, will share the importance of the George Spangler Farm during the Battle of Gettysburg.  He will present information about Confederate Brig. Gen. Lewis A. Armistead’s time at Spangler and what the Spangler family lived through while their farm was occupied along with stories of the suffering and heroism of the surgeons, nurses, wounded and mortally wounded at the two hospitals on the Spanglers’ land.  
After the presentation, Gary Tewksbury will be at his diorama of 1863 Pickett’s Charge to answer questions.
Tickets are available by calling 570-836-1022 x3 or at the Dietrich’s ticket booth while they last.
