Gettysburg, PA

For the 160th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg this year, Seminary Ridge Museum and Education Center is honored to host a candlelit Luminaria as part of our annual 24 Hours on the Ridge event. For two hours on the evening of November 3, more than 400 luminaries will line the historic tan bark path leading to Schmucker Hall, memorializing the soldiers, broken in battle, who sought refuge and care in the Seminary building in the summer of 1863. For just $25, you may sponsor the name of a patient treated at the Seminary Hospital or choose to sponsor in memory of a soldier important to you.

Bags will be lit safely with battery-operated LED tea lights and will feature both your name*, unless you choose to sponsor anonymously, and the name of your sponsored soldier. Following the event, bags will be available to take home.
