An Evening Walk Through History

The first of the 2012 series is on Tuesday, June 5. Stuart Dempsey tells about "Carroll's Brigade at Gettysburg".

Col. Samuel Carroll had a reputation as an agressive combat soldier, and so did the men under his command. By the summer of 1863 the four regiments of his 'Gibraltar Brigade' had already proven themselves on many battlefields, and they would do so again at Gettysburg. The tour will investigate the role of the 8th Ohio in front of Cemetery Ridge, as well as the timely counter attack executed by the rest of this hard-fighting brigade on East Cemetery Hill. The total walking distance of this tour is approximately 1.5 miles for the round trip, including some inclines.

Cost is $30 per person (buy 6 and get one free; buy 12 and get 2 free). For more information contact:
