The Friends of Gettysburg continued a long-standing tradition with its annual Fall Muster on Oct. 5 and 6 in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The two-day event offers special programming and an intimate look at the Gettysburg battlefield and brought together 206 participants representing 15 states.
Held at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center, the semi-annual muster (defined as to assemble troops especially for inspection or in preparation for battle) brings together people who are passionate about the Civil War and the Battle of Gettysburg for education, remembrance and to promote understanding.
“I love watching how our Friends use muster to take what they may have only read about and go out on the battlefield to dive into the details and experience what happened,” said Bethany Yingling, member events specialist at the Gettysburg Foundation.
The 2018 Fall Muster gave participants a chance to choose two battlefield tours from a slate of six topics. Topics ranged from Gettysburg Through the Eyes of the Confederate High Command which explored the strategic and tactical decisions made by the Confederate commanders to a session that took a look at the 17th Maine, the Red Diamond Regiment, and its defense at the southern end of the Wheatfield.
“Whether we are exploring local history and the impact of the war on the area or where a particular regiment may have stood, Muster offers people a chance to make history come alive. Sure, we may challenge each other about our assumptions. Yet in the end, we get to hang out with like-minded, passionate people, and that’s what makes these programs so special,” said Yingling.
Spring Muster is scheduled for April 12-14, 2019. Programming for Spring Muster includes an evening event that looks at the impact of the Civil War on the civilian population—especially women.
Participants can select two different battlefield tours from the following:
