Join NMCWM Education Coordinator John Lustrea for a guided walking tour to examine the events in July 1864 when Gen. Jubal Early and a Confederate Army entered Frederick.

In a series of rapidly unfolding events leading up to July 9, 1864, Confederate troops inundated Frederick, ransomed the city for $200,000, and began a fight with Union troops stationed three miles south of town. Tour will take attendees to various locations downtown where important events in this drama took place.

The program will begin at the National Museum of Civil War Medicine at 3:00 PM on July 6.

This will be a “pay-what-you-please” program. Register ahead of time to hold your spot, as space is limited. Visit the main event page for registration information.
