Battle of Gettysburg

The battle is over! Thank you for following the battle of Gettysburg. It has been an amazing two months. We hope to run the battle next year at the same time. If you are interested in following out other historical tweets, be sure to follow @TwHistory on twitter, and if you want to help out with future projects, please contact us.

There were more casualties in the Battle of Gettysburg than any other battle in the American Civil War; the battle is often described as the war’s turning point. We follow eleven characters leading up to the bloody conflict in early July. If you are new to Twitter, you may want to visit our getting started page. If you already have a Twitter account set up, click on each link below and follow that person (we’re trying to work out an easier solution, but for now, you’ll have to follow each person individually).
