While Gettysburg is well known for events like the Battle Reenactment and the Remembrance Day Parade and Ceremonies, there are other events through out the year like the Civil War Music Muster. This is one event that is on my bucket list. This year it is on August 11th and 12th. I enjoy listening to music from the Civil War era played on traditional instruments. Unfortunately, the events I’ve attended have only had one or two individuals or groups perform. Not so at the Civil War Music Muster in Gettysburg. 8 acts are performing on Friday and and Saturday at four different locations.
Saturday Evening on the Battlefield
Saturday evening the events are at the Pennsylvania Memorial in the heart of Cemetery Ridge. I think it will be wonderful to listen to traditional music as the sunsets on the battlefield. The memorial is stop 12 on the park’s auto tour.
