Cpl. Horace Bushman and the Battle for Normandy

Eisenhower National Historic Site


Adams County, Pennsylvania sent many of its native sons to fight in WWII--not all of them came home. A Gettysburg native, Cpl. Horace Bushman was deeply ingrained in his community. He was killed in action outside of Cherbourg, France, in June 1944, and was buried in the Normandy American Cemetery. Park Ranger Andrew Frantz brings us Horace’s story, and reminds us of Gettysburg’s sacrifice during WWII.
