Join the American Battlefield Trust LIVE on your SmartPhones, tablets or desktops from Gettysburg on November 17th where we will have special guests, new information and coverage of Gettysburg’s Remembrance Day Parade. The parade features numerous Confederate and Union reenactors and living historians to commemorate the creation of the Soldiers National Cemetery at which President Abraham Lincoln famously delivered his Gettysburg Address. The parade route matches to the degree possible the route of the procession from Gettysburg to the Cemetery where burials of Gettysburg dead was still in-process.
And it’s not just a day for a parade; we’ll bring select parts of the battlefield LIVE to your device including the land the Trust is trying to preserve on Seminary Ridge, scene of an intense struggle near the end of the First Day’s fighting. We are still trying to raise money to preserve 18 acres on Seminary Ridge directly across the road from the General Lee’s Headquarters site our members generously helped us preserve in 2016. We hope that some of you help us reach our current goal while we are LIVE (via Facebook’s donation button)!
Tune in to the American Battlefield Trust Facebook page for this exclusive Battlefield LIVE event on November 17, 2018. Look for us to start around 10:00am, eastern and broadcast throughout the day. The parade begins at 1:00pm.
See you (virtually) in Gettysburg!
