Songs and Stories of a Civil War Hospital
30 Chambersburg Street
Gettysburg, PA

Hear stories from the Civil War in first-person narrative solemnly told at Christ Lutheran Church, just off Lincoln Square on Chambersburg Street.


Commemorate the 159th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg with a program that describes the use of the church as a Civil War hospital.  The program features readings from a nurse who cared for wounded soldiers inside the church building and from a wounded soldier himself.  Two poignant poems by Walt Whitman and period music give further insight into the plight of the wounded and the tender care they received.


This is a one-hour program suitable for all ages.


The event is free; donations are most appreciated.
