Join us for a special walking tour that covers the battle action of Colonel Chapman Biddle’s Union brigade on July 1, 1863. This unheralded and often overlooked fighting unit suffered horrific losses on July 1st attempting to defend an indefensible position on McPherson’s Ridge. We will discuss the courageous actions of the commanding officers and the men in the rank and file, as well as the civilians who crossed paths with Biddle’s men at the Emanuel Harmon and John Herbst Farms during the thick of the fighting. Our trek will cover approximately 1/4 mile of walking and will include visits to both farms and each regimental monument. Join us for a story of bravery, courage, and sacrifice.

The tour will be led by Licensed Battlefield Guide and author Larry Korczyk, and Andrew Dalton, Executive Director of the Adams County Historical Society. Both have presented programs and published books and articles about the first day’s battlefield.

Please park at the Emanuel Harmon Farm NPS Parking area on Country Club Lane, or along the west (or non-residential) side of Country Club Lane near its intersection with Old Mill Road. The tour will begin in the parking area and cross Willoughby’s Run on the Old Mill Road bridge. please expect walking across uneven and uphill / downhill terrain.
