The Battle of Gettysburg was fought 145 years ago (July 1st-3rd 1863). There are various events planned on the battlefield itself - including ones hosted by Daughters of the Confederacy/Sons of Union Veterans. There will be re-enactments of the Battle and lectures at various locations around the site.
The National Parks website for the battlefield can be found at http://www.nps.gov/gett/
