Gettysburg Battlefield Ranger and historian Troy Harman draws on a lifetime of researching the Civil War and more than thirty years of studying the terrain of the Gettysburg area to reframe the story of the Battle of Gettysburg. Learn about Harman’s new interpretation of the 1863 campaign, in which he argues that once the Confederates invaded Pennsylvania with the Union Army in pursuit, a battle at Gettysburg was entirely predictable, and perhaps inevitable.
Troy D. Harman has been a National Park Service Ranger since 1984. His assignments have included historical interpretation at Appomattox Court House N.H.P., Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania N.M.P., and, since 1989, Gettysburg N.M.P. He is also the author of “Lee’s Real Plan at Gettysburg” (2003).
