Gettysburg: An Animal-Lover's Tour of the Battlefield

​Gettysburgh Park 1195 Baltimore Pike  Gettysburg, PA 17325   (717) 334-1124

The Gettysburg Battlefield is a favorite place for locals to walk their dogs. And over 150 years ago, it wasn't all that different, as soldiers kept a menagerie of pets with them on campaign.

Animals at Gettsburg Now https://www.nps.gov/gett/learn/nature/animals.htm

Gettysburg Address! A dedication ceremony was planned and famed orator and former Harvard President Edward Everett was to be the featured speaker. President Lincoln was asked to speak as an after thought and had only about two weeks to prepare his remarks.
Approximately 15,000 people were on hand to hear Everett's two hour speech and Lincoln's two minute speech was over before most in the crowd realized he had even begun.

A Prayer for the Animals

  ~An Official Pennsylvania Week for the Animals event~

Join those of us who would like to observe a moment of prayer for the precious animals. We are requesting prayers on Sunday.  This is a multi-faith observance. 
We can offer prayers, poems and memorials to our animal or all animals wherever we are and also light a candle by doing so if possible.
Wherever you are, if you can observe a moment for the animals who need us...that collective energy will surely grow and bring light to our cause to love, assist and help them from any and all suffering. For poems, quotes or additional inspiration,
