Wonder Women's History Tour By Junket

1. Wonder Women's History Tour By Junket

Discover the untold stories of female war heroes on this guided walking tour of Gettysburg’s historic district. Your guide will regale you with tales of the everyday women who cared for the sick, buried the dead, and picked up arms as the Battle of Gettysburg raged on. Stand beside Jennie Wade, the battle’s only civilian casualty, as she hurriedly bakes bread in her final moments. Dig graves with the cemetery caretaker, Elizabeth Thorn, as the dead continue to pile up in the fields. Get a detailed, first-hand look at what it was like to be both a civilian and a soldier during the Civil War’s most dramatic, bloody battle. You’ll walk away with a complete picture of what life was like in July of 1863, where history books offer a very limited scope. Choose the extended tour to visit an additional three stops, where you’ll learn about the scars the battle left behind, and finish up with ice cream from Cone Sweet Cone.

What people are saying about Shriver House Museum

Justin was our guide!!! He was only 23 years old with a passion for history that made it so fun to join in. He answered our questions so well and made us wish we had signed up for more walking tours. He was bright and animated and I hope for the sake of any and all future students he may have... that he realizes his one day dream of becoming a professor at a local college...Our PA students will be blessed...Justin is exceptional!!! So glad we took this tour...We learned so much about the contributions of the ladies of Gettysburg...What a strong and beautifully brave group of ladies!!!!!

Our tour guide, Justin, was extremely knowledgeable and very pleasant to speak with. We’ve been to Gettysburg many times but learned a lot on this tour about the unsung heroines during the battle.

Very interesting to learn about some of the stories of very brave women of the time. Guide was excellent and very knowledgeable.

Bee the tour guide was very informative and knowledgeable of the history of the area.
