This year marks the sixteenth anniversay of the Autumn Gettysburg Civil War & Militaria Show. Our first event was held in 2002 in the ballroom of the Eisenhower Inn & Conference Center with 135 tables of Civil War relics. Since then we have expanded to nearly 400 tables of military artifacts from the the Revolutionary War to the end of World War II. Having outgrown the ballroom we are now in the spacious AllStar Sports Complex on the grounds of the Eisenhower Center.

The show was created by Steve Sylvia, publisher of North South Trader's Civil War magazine, and Dean Thomas. Both men are well established as collectors, relic hunters, writers, photographers and publishers of numerous reference books now considered landmark works in the field of American military collectibles. They both enjoy the status as two of the top publishers in the Civil War relic business.

Their effort in establishing the show was augmented by the capable assistance of Jim Thomas and Nancy Dearing Rossbacher. Together, the team has collaborated in creating a successful and important annual event for collectors and historians.
