Join us on Friday, September 15, as Dan Welch recounts the heroic defense of Culp’s Hill by George Sears Greene’s brigade. Against overwhelming odds, this lone Union brigade held this critically important terrain in a climactic action on July 2, 1863. Learn about Greene, his men, and their gallant service on the slopes of Culp’s Hill in this exciting presentation, which electrified attendees at this summer’s Sacred Trust lectures. What better way to kick of our 65th anniversary campaign year, or commemorate the 160th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg?
