Seminary Ridge Museum and Education Center
111 Seminary Ridge
Codie Eash, SRMEC Director of Education and Museum Operations, will lead visitors on a guided walking tour as part of our 160th Gettysburg Address Anniversary on the Ridge in “‘The Ground Around the Seminary’: President Lincoln’s Gettysburg Battlefield Excursion.”
Hours before Abraham Lincoln delivered his iconic Gettysburg Address on November 19, 1863, at least three eyewitnesses recalled that the president toured the battlefield, and according to one, the party “visited the ground around the Seminary, and Mr. Lincoln joined in.” Join Codie as we use historical evidence to walk that ground and investigate Lincoln’s apparent visit.
Meet on the west side of the Museum.
