The small, rocky hill in south-central Pennsylvania now known as Little Round Top is one of the most well-known historical sites in the United States. After the fighting that raged there on July 2-3, 1863, it has often been called the "key" to the Union position during the battle, and some have stated that if it had fallen to the Confederates on the afternoon of July 2, the United States would have forever been split in two. But the popular story of Little Round Top is a melange of truth and myth. Join Garry Adelman for an energetic and illustrated virtual discussion of Little Round Top on its broadcast timeline from basic geology to the epic status it enjoys today. This program will focus on the relevant parts of the Battle of Gettysburg, the growth of the legend of Little Round Top, and the fascinating story of the evolution of the site as a tourist attraction, from battleground to hallowed ground.
