Horse tours have been offered for decades by farms in the Gettysburg area. But with the 150th anniversary of the Civil War under way and the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg battle approaching next summer, this is an ideal time to visit.
"Now you can get a wonderful feel for what the soldiers actually saw. This field has changed dramatically in just the seven years that I have lived here," said Mr. Fowler, the battlefield guide.
