Preserving Schmucker Hall - Seminary Ridge Museum - Gettysburg
Gettysburg 150 - A Reflection of History Event
Monday, July 01, 2013 to Thursday, July 04, 2013
SOME RELICS OF THE PAST YOU CAN HOLD IN YOUR HAND. OTHERS YOU CAN WALK INSIDE.
Gettysburg's newest musuem--the Seminary Ridge Museum--will open on July 1, 2013--150 years to the day that the Battle of Gettysburg began and was waged on the museum's grounds; the museum building itself became the battle's largest field hospital. The Museum, on the campus of Gettysburg's Lutheran Theological Seminary, will tell the story of the first day of the Battle, Civil War medicine and the role that faith played in the conflict. Grand opening details are being planned now! Check back for details.
A special program on the preservation of Schmucker Hall will be held in the chapel.
