The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, is affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and is America's oldest Lutheran Seminary. As early as 1818, the Pennsylvania Ministerium named a committee of Rev. John George Schmucher, D.D., Conrad Jaeger and H. A. Muhlenberg to plan a seminary for the reformed branch of Protestantism. However, the institution was actually founded in 1826 by Samuel Simon Schmucker, a leading Pennsylvania abolitionist and the son of former committee member, Rev. John George Schmucher, D.D. The younger Rev. Samuel Simon Schmucker became its first professor. Born in February 28, 1799, Schmucker received his theological training at Princeton Seminary, a puritanical school at the time. This young professor, was, at this point in his life, the best educated Lutheran in America. When compared to others of his day, Rev. Schmucker was a conservative Lutheran. The younger Schmucker had most recently served a pastorate in Shenandoah County, Virginia. The seminary gives its name to the geographical feature, Seminary Ridge, which was the site of fierce fighting on the first day of the battle, July 1, 1863. The building, as well as adjacent homes of the professors, was used for weeks after the battle as a temporary field hospital before its last patients were moved to the Camp Letterman military hospital. The building now houses the Adams County Historical Society while they build a new structure north of Gettysburg. Since the Civil War, the Seminary has substantially increased in size, and over a dozen buildings were erected after the war. Scattered throughout the grounds of the Seminary are markers related to the battles, as well as several artillery pieces that approximate the location of several batteries.
