Civil War Music in Gettysburg on February 26
Stay at Gettysburg's premier award-winning B&B, the Brickhouse Inn, for your visit to the David Wills House on Lincoln Square, where you can hear costumed living historian Quinn Gilly play period music on an authentic hand-made banjo. Learn about music of the day, children's folk songs, and banjo making: Saturday, February 26, 1-3 p.m. By the way, the Wills House is where President Lincoln stayed the night before the dedication of the Soldier's Cemetery on November 19, 1863, and is operated by the National Park Service. Lincoln is reputed to have put the finishing touches to his celebrated Gettysburg Address that night - you can see the bed that he slept in.
