Seminary Ridge Museum Observes Founders Day with Luminaries Sept 14th

Luminaries, Dearest Home to Set the Tone for Seminary Ridge Museum Observance

luminaries.jpgWith a touch of Autumn in the air and the schools back in session, the Seminary Ridge Museum is preparing to commemorate the soldiers who were patients in the Seminary hospital from July 1-Sept 16, 1863. The public is invited at Day's End this Saturday, Sept. 14 for a program on the East porch of the museum featuring remarks by Dr. Carol Reardon.

A musical performance by Dearest Home will begin at 7:30pm and the formal program will begin at 8:00pm. Luminary candles linking one civil war soldier to one living sponsor will be illuminated as darkness settles on the hallowed ground which 150 years ago was instantly and concurrently both a fierce battleground and a sanctuary for healing.
