Sat 25 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Educational John Scott Adams Seminar

Forward the Colors: The Flag and Flag Bearers at Gettysburg

The Gettysburg Foundation announces their John Scott Adams Seminar.

Join Licensed Battlefield Guide Maureen Quinn as she discusses Forward the Colors: The Flag and Flag Bearers at Gettysburg.

An Adams Seminar is a full-day program consisting of a half-day indoor lecture and a half-day battlefield tour. Program begins at 9 a.m. in the Ford Education Center Classroom of the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center.
 

Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center

1195 Baltimore Pike
Gettysburg, PA
17325

717-339-2148 The Color Bearers – the men who carried the flags in battle – were among the highest casualties in the Civil War. In just a few minutes during a battle, not just one, two, or three flag-bearers might fall. Instead, a unit might lose five, six, seven, eight – or more – in that short period of time, a grim accounting that would occur on each day of the Battle.The all-important flag signaled a unit’s movement on the battlefield – but it was also the emotional touchstone to home; to the home where a mother, or a sister, or a sweetheart lovingly stitched the banner. It was to be protected at all costs. And frequently, it was. The actions of the color companies to protect their colors were often heroic, usually deadly, and produced some of the most dramatic stories of the Battle. During this presentation, we’ll spend a little time looking at the origins of the battle flag and the various types of flags used by an army but we’ll dedicate the greater part of the presentation to looking at the men -- and the flags they carried -- and hearing their stories. In the afternoon, we’ll tour parts of the battlefield so that we can stand where the flag-bearers stood in battle. And where they once charged across the field, we’ll walk in their footsteps so that we can, as one veteran put it “tread this consecrated ground with reverent step.”

Registration deadline is September 5, 2014. Open to members and non-members, the cost is $70 members and $95 non-members. Optional boxes lunches are available for pre-order at $12 each.
