Fun Fact!: The Battle of Gettysburg transformed the town of Gettysburg. Prior to the Civil War, Gettysburg had been a prosperous village that supported two small colleges. After the battle, however, it was seared by the memories of the slaughter. In the battle’s immediate aftermath, corpses outnumbered residents of the village of just over 2,000 by four to one.
