“Memories of Gettysburg”

Join us for Memories of Gettysburg, one woman’s story of the Battle of Gettysburg and its aftermath. Just what does happens in a town when suddenly faced with thousands of casualties? Annette Hubbell’s portrayal of Miss Hattie Elizabeth Turner’s eyewitness account to the Battle of Gettysburg reveals the strength, courage, and fortitude of our American forefathers. 

Ms. Hubbell gives her 55-minute presentation based on the diary of Hattie Elizabeth Unangst and her additional research on the Civil War era. Taking a first-person, eyewitness perspective, she explains what life was like back then, describes the battle, its aftermath (including a description of medical care) and impact on the town in the months until Lincoln’s address.

We meet at the Robinson Auditorium complex on the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) campus in La Jolla. From North Torrey Pines Road, turn at Pangea Drive into UCSD. Free parking is available in the parking garage on the left; use any space other than those specifically reserved for UCSD vehicles. Signs will mark directions to our meeting room. Please refer to our website; or the Graduate School of International Relations and Pacific Studies website for driving directions and a map.
