Songs and Stories of a Civil War Hospital
Candlelight at Christ Church
Saturday, June 08, 2013 to Saturday, August 31, 2013
The program presents live Civil War era music with sing-a-longs, costumed performers reading from the journals of a citizen nurse who served here and a soldier who was treated in this historic building, and poetry reading that captures the emotion and pathos of this tragic period of our history. A performance brings to life events which occurred in this Civil War hospital when 140 wounded and dying soldiers were sheltered in this beautiful church during and after the Battle of Gettysburg one hundred and fifty years ago. Handicap accessible. Free of charge.
NOTE: No performance July 13.
