The Civil War in 1864
Gettysburg National Military Park Mid-Winter Lecture Series 2014

Today's Program: 1864- The War for the Rail Lines, with Bill Hewitt.

The Federal offensives of 1864 were designed to take advantage of the rail lines under its control and disrupt and destroy the Confederate rail system.  Conversely, the Confederates needed to threaten the ever lengthening supply lines of the Federals, and fiercely protect their own rail lines in order to survive.

 This series of free, one-hour programs begins at 1:30 p.m., in one of the theaters at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center. Additional lectures will take place on weekends through March 9 and are free of charge. Full schedule available by calling 717-334-1124 x 8023 or by visiting www.nps.gov/gett
