Licensed Guide Roy Frampton to speak at Lancaster CWRT October 15

You’re invited to join the Lancaster Civil War Round Table as they welcome Licensed Battlefield Guide Roy Frampton.
Reverend Frampton has been a Civil War “buff” since the age of nine years old. He became a Licensed Battlefield Guide at Gettysburg in 1968, and is currently the President of the Association of Licensed Battlefield Guides. The Gettysburg National Cemetery has been passionately studied by Roy for many years, and he concentrates on the personal lives of the soldiers buried in the cemetery. Roy Frampton is the co-author (with Licensed Battlefield Guide Jim Cole) of the book Lincoln and the Human Interest Stories of the Gettysburg National Cemetery.
Roy’s topic for the evening will be “Battlefield Curiosities.” Ever wonder if there could possibly still be living witnesses to the Battle of Gettysburg? Did you know that there are rock carvings left behind by Civil War soldiers all over the battlefield? Have you seen the 5-inch, three-toed dinosaurs foot print on one of the stone bridges on the battlefield? Licensed Battlefield Guide Roy Frampton will be your guide through the curious, little known secrets of the Gettysburg Battlefield.
Lancaster Civil War Round Table will meet on Thursday, October 15th at 7:00pm at the Lititz Public Library in Lancaster County. These programs are free and open to the public.
