How well do you know Gettysburg’s women’s history?

With the men off to war, the women of Gettysburg pulled themselves up by the bootstraps and began putting their town back together.

Take this quiz to test your knowledge of women in Adams County throughout history. Good luck and don’t forget to share your results with your friends!

    Thanks for these quizzes. I enjoy them. I especially like reading all the possibilities of answers. Funny! Another cause supported by Mamie Eisenhower is the Eisenhower Society. Mamie supported the Society when Henry Scharf (good friend of Ike’s and Gettysburg Hotel owner) and attorney Charlie Wolf suggested they start a group in 1969. She attended every statue ceremony at the College to celebrate Ike’s birthday. Her quote is printed on all of the Society’s stationery and brochures: “I hope and pray that the Society will become a perpetual living memorial to Ike.” December 14, 1975.
