Evening Cemetery Walks
May 22, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Each evening in the summer the Association of Licensed Battlefield Guides sponsors a free walk of the Soldiers National Cemetery as an extension of the National Park Service’s daily interpretive program. These walks are under the leadership of an experienced Licensed Battlefield Guide (LBG) and begin at the rostrum near the Taneytown Road entrance. The walk begins promptly at 5:30 and last approximately an hour and a half ending with the nightly “Taps” program sponsored by the Lincoln Fellowship. A different LBG conducts the tour each evening. Each guide delivers a program that is both unique and comprehensive and is an excellent way to end your day on the Battlefield learning about the development of this “Hallowed Ground” and the stories of some of the individuals buried in it.
