Wonder Women's History Tour By Junket

1. Wonder Women's History Tour By Junket

Discover the untold stories of female war heroes on this guided walking tour of Gettysburg’s historic district. Your guide will regale you with tales of the everyday women who cared for the sick, buried the dead, and picked up arms as the Battle of Gettysburg raged on. Stand beside Jennie Wade, the battle’s only civilian casualty, as she hurriedly bakes bread in her final moments. Dig graves with the cemetery caretaker, Elizabeth Thorn, as the dead continue to pile up in the fields. Get a detailed, first-hand look at what it was like to be both a civilian and a soldier during the Civil War’s most dramatic, bloody battle. You’ll walk away with a complete picture of what life was like in July of 1863, where history books offer a very limited scope. Choose the extended tour to visit an additional three stops, where you’ll learn about the scars the battle left behind, and finish up with ice cream from Cone Sweet Cone.
