Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C., radio stations report traffic and weather conditions. Citizens band radio users can find traffic information on Channel 19, and state police usually monitor Channel 9. Motorists receive a strong mobile telephone signal throughout the Gettysburg vicinity.
Gettysburg was settled in the 1780s and originally called Marsh Creek Settlement. During the 1790s, Gen. James Gettys laid out a town that he called Gettys-town. In 1800, when Pennsylvania allocated funds for a courthouse for the new Adams County, the village was renamed Gettysburg. It was incorporated in 1806.
Gettysburg remained relatively obscure until the summer of 1863. The three-day Battle of Gettysburg, considered one of the most significant engagements in the Civil War, catapulted this obscure village into international, memorable fame.
