79 years ago, General Dwight D. Eisenhower and the Allied Expeditionary Force embarked upon “the great crusade” as thousands of Allied troops landed in Normandy, France, beginning the liberation of Europe.
To commemorate the 79th anniversary of the D-Day invasion, Eisenhower National Historic Site is hosting a special walking tour of Gettysburg National Cemetery on Tuesday, June 6, beginning at 5:30 pm. This free ranger program will meet at the Taneytown Rd entrance to Gettysburg National Cemetery. The program will last approximately one-hour.
Gettysburg National Cemetery is the final resting place for over 6,000 men and women who served the United States in conflicts from the Civil War through the Vietnam War. In the years following World War II, over 500 fallen soldiers, sailors, marines, and airmen were brought back to Gettysburg for their final burial.
This ranger program will be exploring the stories of those buried in Gettysburg who were killed in action during the D-Day invasion 79 years ago.
Following this program’s conclusion, visitors are invited to stay for the evening 100 Nights of Taps program at 7 pm at the Soldiers National Monument in Gettysburg National Cemetery.
