Where the Battle Wasn’t

By Linda Tancs

It’s impossible to think of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, without reflecting on the Battle of Gettysburg. Considered the most important engagement of the U.S. Civil War, it marked a turning point for Union forces and inspired President Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. Given the area’s acclaim, it’s appropriate that a sister city in South Dakota adopted the moniker “Where the Battle Wasn’t.” Although you won’t find a famous battlefield there, you will find plenty of opportunities for hunting and fishing in this pea-sized town in the prairie.
