American Civil War reenactors took part in the annual Remembrance Day Parade in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on Saturday.

Residents and visitors were celebrating the 158th anniversary of the establishment of the Soldiers’ National Cemetery in 1863 following the battle of Gettysburg.

The battle of Gettysburg is considered to be a decisive military action of the American Civil War and a turning point which ultimately allowed the Union (northern US states) to win over the Confederacy (southern US states).

SOT, Wane Bradley, Reenactor: “I’m the third generation to do it. I’m currently 16 years old, turning 17 next week. I do it because I like to honour the guys that actually did it because they gave the ultimate sacrifice of dying. Fortunately, for the battles that we do, we’re not doing one today because it’s the anniversary of the Gettysburg address, but there is the battle of Gettysburg that happens every few years or so.”

SOT, Tim Corney, Reenactor: “We’re here for the Remembrance Day weekend, this is a commemoration of the anniversary of Lincoln’s Gettysburg address when they dedicated the cemetery here for all the Union soldiers who were killed in the battle.”
