Holiday A Civil War Christmas at the Shriver House Experience a Candlelight Christmas Tour of the Shriver House Museum You are cordially invited to take a candlelight tour of the Shriver House Museum decorated for an 1860’s Christmas, while hearing the story of the Shriver family and how the Battle of Gettysburg and the Civil War changed their lives forever. Christmas tours take place from November 28th through December 19th. Private tours for groups of ten or more are welcome anytime throughout the holiday season; reservations are required.

717-337-2800 Take a step back in time to discover how Christmas was celebrated in the mid-1800s. Enter the 19th century home of George, Hettie, Sadie (7), and Mollie (5) Shriver as they prepare for the upcoming Christmas holidays. See the candle-ladenChristmas tree in its place of honor on the parlor table as a fire roars in the fireplace of the handsome room decorated with hand-made holiday greenery. After hanging stockings on the mantle, the girls set out milk and cookies in anticipation of a visit from Santa Claus on that magical night. While soldiers faced the perils of the Civil War, Christmas offered a few moments of cheer that would help brighten the lives of those at home. Learn how families celebrated the holidays while fathers, sons, and husbands were separated from loved ones during this tragic time in American history.

1-877-874-2478 “From the beginning, when I was watching my children stand mesmerized over Niagara Falls, this project was an exercise in renewal,” said Leibovitz. “It taught me to see again.”

The pictures, although there are no people in them, are in a certain sense portraits of subjects that have shaped Leibovitz’s distinctly American view of her cultural inheritance. Visiting the homes of iconic figures, including Eleanor Roosevelt, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Louisa May Alcott, Pete Seeger, and Elvis Presley, as well as places such as Niagara Falls, Gettysburg and the Yosemite Valley, she let her instincts guide her to related subjects—hence the title Pilgrimage.

“Gettysburg is such an important place in American history,” said Gettysburg Foundation President Joanne M. Hanley. “Millions of people make their own pilgrimage of sorts here every year, to stand on these fields and reflect on the battle of Gettysburg’s effect on our nation—an effect we are still feeling today. The Pilgrimage exhibition helps people understand that Gettysburg is very much relevant in our lives today.”

Annie Leibovitz: Pilgrimage is presented at Gettysburg by the Gettysburg Foundation; the exhibition is organized by the Smithsonian American Art Museum. The Bernie Stadiem Endowment Fund provided support for the exhibition, and the C.F. Foundation of Atlanta supports the museum’s traveling exhibition program, Treasures to Go. The prints were made by David Adamson Editions in Washington, D.C.

Thu 6 See Listing For Details Educational Annie Leibovitz: Pilgrimage A selection of photographs from photographer Annie Leibovitz’s Pilgrimage project featuring images of significant historic American sites will be on display from Oct. 25, 2012 through January 20, 2013 at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center.

The exhibition features more than 70 photographs, includes 2 images from Gettysburg.

1-877-874-2478 “From the beginning, when I was watching my children stand mesmerized over Niagara Falls, this project was an exercise in renewal,” said Leibovitz. “It taught me to see again.”

The pictures, although there are no people in them, are in a certain sense portraits of subjects that have shaped Leibovitz’s distinctly American view of her cultural inheritance. Visiting the homes of iconic figures, including Eleanor Roosevelt, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Louisa May Alcott, Pete Seeger, and Elvis Presley, as well as places such as Niagara Falls, Gettysburg and the Yosemite Valley, she let her instincts guide her to related subjects—hence the title Pilgrimage.

“Gettysburg is such an important place in American history,” said Gettysburg Foundation President Joanne M. Hanley. “Millions of people make their own pilgrimage of sorts here every year, to stand on these fields and reflect on the battle of Gettysburg’s effect on our nation—an effect we are still feeling today. The Pilgrimage exhibition helps people understand that Gettysburg is very much relevant in our lives today.”

Annie Leibovitz: Pilgrimage is presented at Gettysburg by the Gettysburg Foundation; the exhibition is organized by the Smithsonian American Art Museum. The Bernie Stadiem Endowment Fund provided support for the exhibition, and the C.F. Foundation of Atlanta supports the museum’s traveling exhibition program, Treasures to Go. The prints were made by David Adamson Editions in Washington, D.C.

Visiting the homes of iconic figures, including Eleanor Roosevelt, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Louisa May Alcott, Pete Seeger, and Elvis Presley, as well as places such as Niagara Falls, Gettysburg and the Yosemite Valley, she let her instincts guide her to related subjects—hence the title Pilgrimage.

“Gettysburg is such an important place in American history,” said Gettysburg Foundation President Joanne M. Hanley. “Millions of people make their own pilgrimage of sorts here every year, to stand on these fields and reflect on the battle of Gettysburg’s effect on our nation—an effect we are still feeling today. The Pilgrimage exhibition helps people understand that Gettysburg is very much relevant in our lives today.”

1-877-874-2478 “From the beginning, when I was watching my children stand mesmerized over Niagara Falls, this project was an exercise in renewal,” said Leibovitz. “It taught me to see again.”

The pictures, although there are no people in them, are in a certain sense portraits of subjects that have shaped Leibovitz’s distinctly American view of her cultural inheritance. Visiting the homes of iconic figures, including Eleanor Roosevelt, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Louisa May Alcott, Pete Seeger, and Elvis Presley, as well as places such as Niagara Falls, Gettysburg and the Yosemite Valley, she let her instincts guide her to related subjects—hence the title Pilgrimage.

“Gettysburg is such an important place in American history,” said Gettysburg Foundation President Joanne M. Hanley. “Millions of people make their own pilgrimage of sorts here every year, to stand on these fields and reflect on the battle of Gettysburg’s effect on our nation—an effect we are still feeling today. The Pilgrimage exhibition helps people understand that Gettysburg is very much relevant in our lives today.”

Annie Leibovitz: Pilgrimage is presented at Gettysburg by the Gettysburg Foundation; the exhibition is organized by the Smithsonian American Art Museum. The Bernie Stadiem Endowment Fund provided support for the exhibition, and the C.F. Foundation of Atlanta supports the museum’s traveling exhibition program, Treasures to Go.

1-877-874-2478 “From the beginning, when I was watching my children stand mesmerized over Niagara Falls, this project was an exercise in renewal,” said Leibovitz. “It taught me to see again.”

The pictures, although there are no people in them, are in a certain sense portraits of subjects that have shaped Leibovitz’s distinctly American view of her cultural inheritance. Visiting the homes of iconic figures, including Eleanor Roosevelt, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Louisa May Alcott, Pete Seeger, and Elvis Presley, as well as places such as Niagara Falls, Gettysburg and the Yosemite Valley, she let her instincts guide her to related subjects—hence the title Pilgrimage.

“Gettysburg is such an important place in American history,” said Gettysburg Foundation President Joanne M. Hanley. “Millions of people make their own pilgrimage of sorts here every year, to stand on these fields and reflect on the battle of Gettysburg’s effect on our nation—an effect we are still feeling today. The Pilgrimage exhibition helps people understand that Gettysburg is very much relevant in our lives today.”

Annie Leibovitz: Pilgrimage is presented at Gettysburg by the Gettysburg Foundation; the exhibition is organized by the Smithsonian American Art Museum. The Bernie Stadiem Endowment Fund provided support for the exhibition, and the C.F. Foundation of Atlanta supports the museum’s traveling exhibition program, Treasures to Go. The prints were made by David Adamson Editions in Washington, D.C.

1-877-874-2478 “From the beginning, when I was watching my children stand mesmerized over Niagara Falls, this project was an exercise in renewal,” said Leibovitz. “It taught me to see again.”

The pictures, although there are no people in them, are in a certain sense portraits of subjects that have shaped Leibovitz’s distinctly American view of her cultural inheritance. Visiting the homes of iconic figures, including Eleanor Roosevelt, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Louisa May Alcott, Pete Seeger, and Elvis Presley, as well as places such as Niagara Falls, Gettysburg and the Yosemite Valley, she let her instincts guide her to related subjects—hence the title Pilgrimage.

“Gettysburg is such an important place in American history,” said Gettysburg Foundation President Joanne M. Hanley. “Millions of people make their own pilgrimage of sorts here every year, to stand on these fields and reflect on the battle of Gettysburg’s effect on our nation—an effect we are still feeling today. The Pilgrimage exhibition helps people understand that Gettysburg is very much relevant in our lives today.”

Annie Leibovitz: Pilgrimage is presented at Gettysburg by the Gettysburg Foundation; the exhibition is organized by the Smithsonian American Art Museum. The Bernie Stadiem Endowment Fund provided support for the exhibition, and the C.F. Foundation of Atlanta supports the museum’s traveling exhibition program, Treasures to Go. The prints were made by David Adamson Editions in Washington, D.C.

Sun 30 See Listing For Details Educational Annie Leibovitz: Pilgrimage A selection of photographs from photographer Annie Leibovitz’s Pilgrimage project featuring images of significant historic American sites will be on display from Oct. 25, 2012 through January 20, 2013 at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center.

The exhibition features more than 70 photographs, includes 2 images from Gettysburg.

1-877-874-2478 “From the beginning, when I was watching my children stand mesmerized over Niagara Falls, this project was an exercise in renewal,” said Leibovitz. “It taught me to see again.”

The pictures, although there are no people in them, are in a certain sense portraits of subjects that have shaped Leibovitz’s distinctly American view of her cultural inheritance. Visiting the homes of iconic figures, including Eleanor Roosevelt, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Louisa May Alcott, Pete Seeger, and Elvis Presley, as well as places such as Niagara Falls, Gettysburg and the Yosemite Valley, she let her instincts guide her to related subjects—hence the title Pilgrimage.

“Gettysburg is such an important place in American history,” said Gettysburg Foundation President Joanne M. Hanley. “Millions of people make their own pilgrimage of sorts here every year, to stand on these fields and reflect on the battle of Gettysburg’s effect on our nation—an effect we are still feeling today. The Pilgrimage exhibition helps people understand that Gettysburg is very much relevant in our lives today.”

Annie Leibovitz: Pilgrimage is presented at Gettysburg by the Gettysburg Foundation; the exhibition is organized by the Smithsonian American Art Museum. The Bernie Stadiem Endowment Fund provided support for the exhibition, and the C.F. Foundation of Atlanta supports the museum’s traveling exhibition program, Treasures to Go. The prints were made by David Adamson Editions in Washington, D.C.
