2019 ROA
International Meet

Gettysburg, PA
June 25-June 28
Tuesday-Friday

Gettysburg and the surrounding fields were the site of the largest battle of the American Civil War. Although fought for only three days from July 1-3, 1863, it was known as the turning point of the war. More than 160,000 soldiers from the Union and Confederate armies met in combat with more than 50,000 casualties. Total deaths exceeded 8,000 soldiers and approximately 3,000 horses. It is also the site where President Abraham Lincoln attended a ceremony on November 19th of that year to officially consecrate the grounds and delivered his Gettysburg Address.

There is so much to do and see in the town and surrounding area that with every registration confirmation you will receive an email with list of attractions, so you can plan your visit. You can be adventurous and tour the battlefield by bicycle, horseback, or Segway, or join us on a comfortable guided tour. We will have several tours, but seating is limited, so don't delay. Register Now! Besides the Battlefields, there is the historic downtown with its many museums, shops, and restaurants. One popular stop is the historic home of our 34th President Dwight D. Eisenhower. ROA registration form appears on the back of the mailing sheet.

For Gettysburg, we were able to schedule the meet starting on Tuesday with our car show and banquet on Friday. Since we have extended room rates, you may want to stay over for the following weekend. Since the July 4th celebration is the following week, it is best to make your reservations early.
