History is heating up in Gettysburg this week as we re-live the bloodiest battle of the Civil War.  The battle represents a turning of the ride for the Union Army.

Historians, Civil War Re-enactors and patriotic Americans from all corners are visiting Gettysburg to remember a most crucial turning point in America.

Walking through the square, you get a sense of what life was like when Union forces turned away the confederates during fierce fighting 150 years ago.  46,000 men lost their lives during the 3-day battle.

History aside, members of the Gettysburg Garden Club work on preserving plants and flowers as hundreds of tourists move throughout the town.  Members say the town’s image is equally as important as its history for the 150th Anniversary.

Members have been working their green thumbs for weeks and they are still maintaining the grounds throughout the festivities to please tourists from all over.
