In July of 1863, the Union and Confederate armies met on the battlefield at Gettysburg, PA. Overnight, the fighting transformed nearby Lutheran Theological Seminary into a field hospital for both sides. War came to a place of peaceful study, making Gettysburg Seminary a historic crossroads of duty and devotion, conflict and compassion. Join Barbara Franco, Founding Executive Director of the newly-opened Gettysburg Seminary Ridge Museum, as she explores how religious foment, innovation and change influenced people’s thinking about moral issues of war and slavery. Learn about the Americans who met at Gettysburg and grappled not only with life and death, but with divergent ideas of faith and freedom.
