Remembering Gettysburg: From Memorial to Stage
Gauri Mangala '21, Gettysburg College
Date of Creation
Remembering Gettysburg is an interactive analysis of the development of performance and storytelling in the town of Gettysburg. The project is as a way to understand the history and culture behind performative historical remembrance models, like ghost tours and living history museums, and to house archives of the Gettysburg College Theatre Department in a public-facing space. The site uses tools like WordPress and TimelineJS to analyze tourism in Gettysburg from Lincoln’s famous Gettysburg Address to the present. Just as long as the townspeople of Gettysburg are devoted to remembering ‘what they did here,’ the town will remain both a memorial and a stage.
