On November 2–4, 2012, Dr. Jason R. Edwards took nine
students to the Antietam and Gettysburg battlefields as part of a history
course on the American Civil War. Students were able to learn about these
battles and the war itself in a more robust way by walking the actual ground
where these great battles took place. Park Rangers and the on-site museums also
afforded students deeper insights into the soldiers’ and civilians’ experience
during America’s most costly war. As America looks back at the 150-year
anniversary of the war, Grove City College’s history department is proud to be
directly involved in the remembrance.
The Department of History at Grove City College is pleased to add this Civil War battlefield trip to its lexicon of
travel opportunities that provide students unparalleled opportunities for
academic growth and personal interaction between professor and student.
