“A Step Back in Time”


Step back in time to July 5, 1863, and meet several of Westminster’s residents in the aftermath of Corbit’s Charge and the battle of Gettysburg. During this unique walking tour, escorted groups will visit four locations and meet Dr. Joshua Hering, Mary Key, Abraham and Mollie Huber, and Mary and Fannie Shellman. After the tour, participants are welcome to stop in the Kimmey yard to meet some
re-enactors and enjoy Civil War music by John DuRant.

Tickets for the timed tours can be purchased in advance or in the Shop at Cockey’s that day. Tours will be held from late afternoon into the early evening and last about an hour. Cost for the event is $5 for adults and seniors and $3 for children.

Scripts for the program have been written by students from the McDaniel College Theater Department. Our partners for the event include the Carroll County Public Library and the Pipe Creek Civil War Roundtable.
