 Join us on February 4, 2019, as Nancy Householder talks about the Monuments of Gettysburg

alt

The monuments at Gettysburg were mostly put up by the veterans themselves. They have two purposes, to honor comrades who died in battle, and to remember what they did. They have many special symbols and stories that go with them and these will be explained.

Nancy Householder is currently the Vice President of the Pipe Creek Civil War Round Table and former President. She has been studying to be a Licensed Battlefield Guide for the Gettysburg National Military Park and has been a docent at the Union Mills Homestead for more than 25 years. She has also been a guide for Ghosts of Gettysburg Candlelight Walking Tours for the past 12 years.
