The 7th Annual Gettysburg National 19th Century Base Ball Festival returns to Gettysburg July 15-17, for three great days of mid summer family fun with 18 clubs from across America converging to show the citizens of Gettysburg and Adams County as well as its visitors, what a sporting event was like in 1863.

The clubs, which will come from Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana, will be playing baseball using the same style uniforms and equipment and playing by the same rules and customs of 1863.
