Travel to Gettysburg in June

A few spots remain for those who want to learn more about the Civil War during an affordable four-day trip to Gettysburg in June.

A small group will depart UVa-Wise on Monday, June 25, for a four day Civil War tour to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.  Day one will include a mid-trip stop in Lexington, Virginia. Days two and three will be spent on the battlefield at Gettysburg.  Day four will be the return trip with a stop at the New Market Battlefield.

Through the generous support of the C. Bascom Slemp Foundation, the four-day trip will only cost $400 per person with double occupancy hotel, transportation, tour, and materials included. The low cost makes the tour one of the most affordable study trips of the summer. To reserve a space, call Brian McKnight at 276-376-4574 or email at
