Gettysburg. For three tumultuous days in 1863, this was the backdrop for one of the Civil War’s most dynamic encounters. Decisions made, opportunities missed, passions sparked and conversations avoided changed the course of our country. Today, this historically sacred setting is the site of a powerful, soles-on-the-ground program that looks to those leaders, lessons and legacy with a clear, contemporary purpose:
to set the stage for you to prepare for your greatest challenges.
