JULY 2019

Dan Welch - How Did They Get Here? The Gettysburg Campaign

The three days of battle in a small Pennsylvania town during July 1863 are considered by many to be the turning point if the Civil War.  Seminary Ridge, Little Round Top, The Peach Orchard and Pickets Charge are names that are familiar to even the most modest Civil War student.

For the 156th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, we welcome Dan Welch who will help us follow the Union and Confederate armies northward across Virginia, Maryland, and into Pennsylvania during the weeks leading up to the battle of Gettysburg and examine the many battles and events that impacted both before the first shot of July 1, 1863.

Dan Welch currently serves as a primary and secondary educator with a public school district in northeast Ohio. Previously, Dan was the education programs coordinator for the Gettysburg Foundation, the non-profit partner of Gettysburg National Military Park, and continues to serve as a seasonal park ranger at Gettysburg National Military Park.

Our speaker received his BA in Instrumental Music Education from Youngstown State University and a MA in Military History with a Civil War Era concentration at American Military University. Welch has also studied under the tutelage of Dr. Allen C. Guelzo as part of the Gettysburg Semester at Gettysburg College.

Dan’s first book, The Last Road North: A Guide to the Gettysburg Campaign, 1863, was released as part of the Emerging Civil War Series in June 2016.  He currently resides with his wife, Sarah, in Boardman, Ohio.

We look forward to Dan’s presentation, and encourage you and a guest to join us!
