Gettysburg Connection:  Your News, Your Voice; Your Community

Founded in 2018 by owner, publisher, and editor Charles Stangor, Gettysburg Connection has quickly grown to be the premier source of free online news for Gettysburg and Adams County residents.

We’re an award-winning grassroots publication with the goal of maintaining open news access for all members of this community regardless of income. We are sustainable due to the support of those who are able and willing to pay because they believe in the value of what we do.
