The Living Historian: Keeping History Alive

Sunrise at WS Hancock Monument,
East Cemetery Hill, Gettysburg, PA, Summer 2019


Welcome to my website! My name is Brian Burtka, and I am a professional public and living historian. This website presents some of the work that I have accomplished throughout my career. I have been a living historian and reenactor for over a decade, and it has taught me one thing: history is alive! It is not dead and past. Rather, it shapes and defines who we are and what we do. Because of this, I have made it my mission to keep history alive.

Please browse around this website to see some of my projects that have come out of this philosophy.
