You Are There: The Battle of Gettysburg, July 3, 1863

You Are There was a 1940s radio program that “blended history with modern technology, taking an entire network newsroom on a figurative time warp each week reporting the great events of the past“.

This episode was first broadcast in February of 1948, but imagine that radio existed in 1863.

This is what you would have heard as you were sitting in the front parlor with friends and family, listening in awe to a first person play by play account of the battle action at Gettysburg on July 3, 1863.
