Gettysburg National Military Park Receives Excellence in Interpretation Award
In early December, Barb Sanders and Scott Hartwig received an Excellence In Interpretation Award from the National Park Service Eastern Region. The award recognized their role in the development of the film " Big Deal at Gettysburg: The Value of Historical Places," a multimedia product aimed at providing an understanding of the value of historical places to students.  The production was funded by the Gettysburg Foundation.

Hartwig and Sanders

Sanders is the Park's Education Specialist and Hartwig is the Park's Supervisory Historian. Together they developed the concept, script and created lesson plans to reach a national audience, some of whom may never be able to come to the Park. Their idea was to provide teachers and students the tools necessary to understand and come to their own decisions on the value of preserving our nation's heritage.

Visit the Quartermaster Store to purchase your own copy of the award-winning "Big Deal at Gettysburg."
