Plan Your Gettysburg Trip


One Hundred Nights of Taps


Time: 7 p.m.


Lincoln Fellowship of Pennsylvania
Gettysburg National Cemetery, Steinwehr Avenue
Gettysburg, PA

For the eighth year, beginning on Memorial Day (May 27, 2024) and running through Labor Day (September 2, 2024), the notes of “Taps” will once more fill the air every evening as the famous 24-note call sounds in Gettysburg National Cemetery.

The Lincoln Fellowship of Pennsylvania and Gettysburg National Military Park are co-sponsors for One Hundred Nights of Taps, Gettysburg in partnership with Taps for Veterans, Gettysburg’s Licensed Battlefield Guides, and Eisenhower National Historic Site. The program runs nightly at 7 P. M. at the Soldiers’ National Monument in Gettysburg National Cemetery.

This moving program features two educational components. Beginning at 5:30 P. M. each evening representatives from Gettysburg’s Licensed Battlefield Guides offer a free interpretive program exploring the aftermath of the battle of Gettysburg and the creation of the National Cemetery in Gettysburg, concluding at the Soldiers’ National Monument. During the formal “Taps” program beginning at 7 P. M. representatives from the Lincoln Fellowship, guest National Park Service Rangers, and Licensed Battlefield Guides offer brief historical vignettes. Called Enduring Pathways, these focus on Abraham Lincoln, the Gettysburg Address, the history of Taps, and the Soldiers’ National Monument, with topics changing nightly.

The volunteer buglers include active-duty military musicians, military veterans, Civil War living historians and musicians, community band members, high school and college students, and music teachers.
