CWRT – Gettysburg Battle Walk
Meet us at the North Carolina Monument for a 2-hour educational battlewalk!
The York Civil War Round Table (formerly the White Rose CWRT) is announcing a battlefield guided tour and battlewalk specifically related to the Trimble and Pettigrew portion of Pickett’s Charge. This walk is open to the public under the sponsorship of the CWRT, and is being led by Licensed Battlefield Guide and history professor Dr. Charlie Fennell, Jr.
The battlefield tramp and detailed explanation of this underpublicized part of Pickett’s Charge will be Saturday, November 10 on the grounds of the Gettysburg National Military Park. The tour will begin at 2:00 p.m. at the North Carolina Monument on West Confederate Avenue (on Seminary Ridge). It will end across the way on Cemetery Ridge. Those wishing to carpool to avoid hiking the round trip are advised to meet at the flagpole by the Cyclorama on Cemetery Ridge at 1:30. Some cars will be left there to provide others with transportation back to the NC Monument following this two-hour walk.
The cost is only $10, which will be used to defray the cost of hiring Dr. Fennell, who is a delightful and entertaining speaker, as well as a very knowledgable historian.
Please leave a comment on this blog if you are planning to attend, and the CWRT will contact you with a confirmation.
Why not get some fresh air and a little exercise, as well as learning something new about the Battle of Gettysburg? Come on out and join us for the York CWRT fall battlewalk!
