Members of the Pennsylvania National Guard commemorated the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg with a wreath laying ceremony. Pennsylvania units that share lineage with companies that fought in 1863 laid the wreath at the Pennsylvania monument at the Gettysburg National Military Park. There was also a short presentation about the units duties for then and now.

The ceremony began and ended with a concert from the 28th Division Band with Civil-War era selections.
