Gettysburg – An Archeological Investigation

Aqua Survey recently performed a survey on private land near Gettysburg National Military Park.

Fought on July 1-3, 1863, the Battle of Gettysburg was a decisive Union victory, many considering it to be the turning point of the war. With an estimated 51,000 casualties, it is the bloodiest battle ever fought in North America.

About two miles behind what would have been the Confederate lines on the second and third days of the battle, the area surveyed is believed to have been a Confederate field hospital during the conflict.
