Thanksgiving evening is the beginning of the Christmas holiday season at the Shriver House Museum. The Shriver family moved into their new home just before the Christmas of 1860. In anticipation of showing off their beautiful new home to family and friends, their house is fully decorated for a mid-19th century Christmas gathering.

Come hear how very different each of the five Christmases they spent in their home were affected by the Civil War. One of the wealthiest families in Gettysburg at the time, the first holiday George and Hettie, along with their two daughters, Sadie (5) and Mollie (3), celebrated in their new home was one full of joy and delight. Just four months later the Civil War began. The country was in turmoil and George Shriver was fighting with Cole’s Cavalry which made it a challenge for Hettie Shriver to celebrate the following holidays with her girls while their father was away.

The 4’ tall candle-laden Christmas tree sits in the middle of the handsome parlor decorated with holiday greenery. After hanging their stockings on the mantle, Sadie and Mollie set out springerle cookies in anticipation of a visit from Santa Claus on that magical night. The smell of pine and popcorn fills the house bringing memories of Christmases past.

Every Saturday and Sunday at 2:00 PM from April until October, docents from the National Museum of Civil War Medicine will explain how Frederick became “One Vast Hospital.” Arguably the most trying moment in city’s history came after the Battle of Antietam in the fall of 1862. The town’s population doubled when 8,000 wounded soldiers were delivered by ambulance to make-shift hospitals throughout Frederick.

Initially the walking tours will be limited to 12 participants. Masks are required throughout the tour and we request that you practice strict social distancing. Tickets are $15 and include admission to the National Museum of Civil War Medicine in addition to the walking tour. Tickets are free for Museum members, but you must still reserve your spot. Reservations will be accepted on a first come first served basis.

With accounts taken from the diaries and letters of the surgeons, soldiers, and civilians who were there, this guided walking tour will explore the locations of the city’s Civil War hospitals in churches, schools, and public buildings. This program is an excellent way to take in downtown Frederick as many of those same buildings still make up the historic district today.

Throughout the American Civil War, Frederick, Maryland played a vital role to both Union and Confederate armies. Soldiers marched beneath the “Clustered Spires” on their way to battles at Antietam, Gettysburg, and Monocacy. The “One Vast Hospital” tour focuses on the wreckage left behind.

ACHS Executive Director Andrew Dalton will narrate the program, featuring rare images of the town taken throughout its long and storied history.

Join us to experience a battle reenactment and living history on the hallowed grounds of the Daniel Lady Farm, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The Gettysburg Battlefield Preservation Association’s 146 acres borders the Gettysburg National Military Park at Benner’s Hill. The farm was the site of the CSA artillery emplacements and infantry preparation for the Confederate attack on Culp’s Hill. The house and barn became the 2nd Corps, 2nd Division field hospital. Shell fragments and soldiers’ carved initials are preserved in the barn and blood-stained floors in the house.

With all events this year, much effort is going into meeting Pennsylvania State Covid requirements and keeping our guests’ visits safe and enjoyable! It is our intent to hold a ‘Living History’ and ‘Skirmish’ should we have enough participants. Armor and Mech are welcome to attend along with other WWII impressions that meet NPS standards. As the GBPA is not part of the NPS, we allow blank firing for demonstrations at prescribed points and times along with the skirmish.

Participants must be part of a unit that is planning to attend. Unit commanders will be held accountable for safety within their units.

All fees collected go to the preservation of the Daniel Lady Farm Historic Site!

With accounts taken from the diaries and letters of the surgeons, soldiers, and civilians who were there, this guided walking tour will explore the locations of the city’s Civil War hospitals in churches, schools, and public buildings. This program is an excellent way to take in downtown Frederick as many of those same buildings still make up the historic district today.

Throughout the American Civil War, Frederick, Maryland played a vital role to both Union and Confederate armies. Soldiers marched beneath the “Clustered Spires” on their way to battles at Antietam, Gettysburg, and Monocacy. The “One Vast Hospital” tour focuses on the wreckage left behind.

For over 10 years, participants have been enjoying this springtime adventure challenge in two separate events, a 50k and 15k, both culminating in a finish-line picnic celebration at the Ironmaster’s Mansion at Pine Grove Furnace State Park, the famed halfway point along the Appalachian National Scenic Trail. We are sorry we could not offer the 50k in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, however, we look forward to offering both events once again in September 2021. You’ll experience the same challenging and rewarding day — the rock scrambles, grueling ascents, ridgeline vistas, wildflowers, rushing streams and lakesides, and epic single track trails through Michaux State Forest.

For those new to the race, the Ironmaster’s Challenge features a 50K Ultra and a 15K Challenge, both of which are open to trail runners and hikers, and feature the beautiful woodlands of Pine Grove Furnace State Park and surrounding Michaux State Forest. Each course is wheel-measured and each event is professionally timed by Pretzel City Sports for instant results. Radio communications, staffed food and water checkpoints, and additional water stations are provided. Every year participants praise the trail course for its challenging features, scenic quality and diversity, and finish-line reception at the charming Ironmaster’s Mansion.

Other benefits included in your registration are a tech t-shirt, a finisher’s premium for the 50K Ultra event, a finishline picnic lunch, and a plentiful supply of local beer provided by our beverage sponsor, Molly Pitcher Brewing Company (Carlisle, PA). Each participant will be provided with instructions, trail maps, check point locations, and water/aid stations.

The Ironmaster’s Challenge is organized as a fundraiser by Central Pennsylvania Conservancy (CPC), the nonprofit land trust for the surrounding five county-region. All proceeds from the race support CPC’s mission to acquire, preserve and protect important natural areas in our region through land acquisition, conservation easements, and outreach. Many of CPC’s projects seek to protect regional trail resources for public access, recreational use, and permanent protection of the surrounding scenic landscapes.

Regardless of which event you choose, you will have fun. Sunshine, fresh air, and forested trails beckon you to join us … besides, you’ll be supporting a great cause! We hope to see you on the trail. Please contact us anytime with questions you may have.

Please NO pets and NO smoking.
