American history permeates virtually all parts of the Mid-Atlantic Region, which also means that this area of the country is home to a plethora of historical sites and attractions.


Historic places can be found throughout Delaware (“First State”); Philadelphia (Liberty Bell and Independence Hall), Valley Forge (site of General George Washington’s winter encampment during the Revolutionary War), and Gettysburg, PA (Civil War battleground and site of President Lincoln’s famed address to the nation); the naval and maritime history of Annapolis, MD; the living history village of Williamsburg, VA; and the monuments of Washington, DC - just to name a few!


Rich with history and replete with artifacts, monuments, battlefields and museums dedicat- ed to the Civil War is Gettysburg, PA.


The Gettysburg Foundation was formed in 2006, via the merging of two active groups dedicated to preserving the local history (Gettysburg National Battlefield Museum Foundation and the Friends of the National Parks at Gettysburg). This merger resulted in an innovative non-profit partnership in conjunction with the National Park Service (NPS), according to Debbie Joyner, facility events and rentals manager, and Tracy Cromeans, CTA, facility event associate, for the Gettysburg Foundation.


The foundation is a non-profit philanthropic, educational organization operating in partner- ship with the NPS to preserve Gettysburg National Military Park and the Eisenhower National Historic Site, while also educating the public about the significance of both.


Joyner and Cromeans add that every day the staff and volunteers of the foundation strive to deliver an exceptional experience for visitors. “We owe an enormous debt of thanks to our community for joining us on this remarkable journey, and we hope that new visitors will con- tinue to be part of the Gettysburg story.”
