The Gettysburg College Historical Society is a history club that brings together those genuinely interested in history and, consequently, does not discriminate based on major. It endeavors to spark historical conversation among all the members of the Gettysburg community and enable a trade of knowledge and perspectives on historical matters. This club’s mission is to nurture fruitful and respectful historical discourse that provides application to the grander scheme of life. Its members should respect tradition but not be hindered by it. They should educate, but be imaginative in the ways that that can be done. Ultimately this is an open club designed for discussion, imagination, and action.
