Today marks the 150th anniversary of the beginning of our Civil War, the seminal event in American History. Though it seems this important historical date has gone largely forgotten by the media, we here at Pub Talk would like to do our part in commemorating this event.
This week, we will look back at some of the best Civil War influenced pubs and music featured on the American Public House Review. We begin today with a pub in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania which happens to also be my personal favorite watering hole found in town, O’Rorkes Eatery and Spirits.
O’Rorke’s may not be the centuries old, bullet-ridden place one may expect to find in a town like Gettysburg. But don’t let that deter you one but. Sit at the bar here, and you will find yourself immersed in the spirit of this haunting town. Before long, you too will notice that you keep passing the other taverns by for a seat at the bar in O’Rorkes.
