Bye-bye, clutter: Civil War Trust completes Lee headquarters restoration at Gettysburg

Robert E. Lees headquarters at Gettysburg as much as possible to its July 1863 appearance when a maelstrom of war descended on the property. Gary Adelman, director of historian and education for the Trust, told the Gettysburg Daily website that the transformation of the building would give Gettysburg visitors a new appreciation of what occurred July 1, 1863, the first day of the decisive battle. The Trust in 2014 launched its fundraising effort to buy the property and museum collection. The hotel and restaurant demolished, parking lots removed, and the property was regraded to approximate its wartime appearance more.
