This video describes the Gettysburg battlefield landscape rehabilitation and is an invitation to discover more about the park's past, present, and future. A planning document was used to guide the rehabilitation of the landscape character to reflect how it appeared during the 1863 battle, returning it to a mosaic of smaller field patterns, rebuilding miles of wooden fencing, actively managing historic fields to open views, and planting orchards.
