Join us on Facebook to see Lee's Headquarters!
If you haven’t heard the exciting news, we are hosting a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Gen. Robert E. Lee’s headquarters site at Gettysburg battlefield on Friday, October 28th. We are holding an event where we will unveil the restored Mary Thompson House, showcase a landscape returned to its 1863 appearance, and open a new interpretive battlefield trail.
Unable to attend the ribbon cutting in person? Tune in to our Facebook Live event! Mark your calendar for Friday, October 28th at 11:10 a.m. Garry Adelman, our Director of History and Education, will give viewers a live tour of the restored house and a look at the interpretive trail. The live broadcast will be featured on the Civil War Trust Facebook page.
This project has involved some of the Trust’s most ambitious work to date, and the support of our members was essential to acquiring this site and returning it to its wartime appearance. So even if you are unable to make it to Gettysburg on Friday, get the next best thing and join us for an up close look at the site!
To watch, head to the Civil War Trust Facebook page on Friday, October 28th at 11:10 a.m. You can leave questions for Garry in the comments section of the live broadcast.
This ground-breaking preservation victory has been made possible thanks to many of you. Help us celebrate this extraordinary achievement and tune in to see and tour the finished site!
P.S. If you are unable to attend the Lee’s Headquarters ribbon cutting, you can take a tour with a Facebook Live broadcast on Friday at 11:10 a.m.
