Planning Ahead

Recommended Posts

From the Washington Post: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/house-divided

Two illuminations are coming up, one in Mississippi and the other in Pennsylvania. On Nov. 12 and 13, in Corinth, Miss., beginning at dusk, the 5th annual Grand Illumination will include lighting candles for 12,000 soldiers at the site of battery Robinett/Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center. Participants will then follow a pathway into downtown highlighting individual homes, the historic district and the Contraband Camp.

At Gettysburg, on Nov. 19, the 3,500 Civil War graves at Gettysburg's Soldiers' National Cemetery will be illuminated by light from individual candles beginning at dusk. It is the 9th annual commemoration.

Both events are free.
