An Adams Seminar is a full-day program consisting of a half-day indoor lecture and a half-day battlefield tour. Program begins at 9 a.m. in the Ford Education Center Classroom of the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center. Please indicate in the Comments Box below a preference of ham, roast beef, turkey, or vegetarian sandwich. 

Almost everyone knows of the famous 20th Maine and their stand on July 2nd on Little Round Top, but Maine brought fourteen other units with almost 3,700 men to the battle; and Maine units were key to the battle on each of the three days. We will examine a number of these “other” units and visit the ground where they fought. Included will be the 16th ME on Oak Hill July 1st; the 17th ME in the Wheatfield, the 4th ME in Devil’s Den, Co. D 2nd US Sharpshooters at the Slyder Farm, and the 3rd ME in Pitzer’s Woods and in the Peach Orchard, all on July 2nd; and the 19th Maine defending the wall at Pickett’s Charge on July 3rd. A few of these units took casualty percentages well in excess of what the 20th I endured. Join us as we learn how these “other” Maine units contributed mightily to the ultimate success of the Union Army at Gettysburg. The walk will be easy across about one mile of relatively flat ground.
