150 years ago today, July 3, 1863, the three-day Battle of Gettysburg, widely considered the turning point of the Civil War, ended.

For several days now, the town and surrounding areas of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania have hosted events commemorating the battle, the history and the people of that historic time.  And, the biggest of the Battle of Gettysburg re-creations is still to come, scheduled for this weekend.

Thousands of re-enactors are in Gettysburg, retracing the steps of those who laid all on the line for both the Union Army and the Confederacy.  Bob Kirby, the superintendent of the Gettysburg National Military Park has told Radio PA News that officials have estimated that some 200,000 people will have visited the Gettysburg area by the end of this week.
