ALBG Spring 2015 Seminar: The Union Right Flank: The Other "High Ground"

April 10-11, 2015

The Association of Licensed Battlefield Guides, Inc. announces the 2015 edition of its popular spring single-topic seminar series.  Our spring program this coming year will focus the defense of the right flank of the Union battleline at Gettysburg.

Our annual seminar will commence on Friday evening, April 10th, with a study of period phorographs and historic maps of the area the Union right flank occupies on the 2nd and 3rd days of the Battle of Gettysburg with LBG Phil Lechak.

Saturday, April 11th, will be a full day of field programs. The morning starts on Benner's Hill, the Confederate artillery platfor,, with LBG George Newton. From there, LBG John Archer will lead u over Culp's Hill and the fighting there on both the 2nd and 3rd days of the battle.  Our morning will conclude with George Newton and a tour of the newly cleared Union artillery platform on Power's Hill.

After a break for lunch, ALBG Associate member Dean Schultz will lead us to the little visited area of Neill Avenue, often called "Lost Avenue" due to its inaccessibility. We will follow the historic road trace to Rock Creek and the area of the historic dam.  Our afternoon will conclude with a visit to the McAllister Saw and Grist Mill sites, a stop on the Underground Railroad and a field hospital during and after the battle.

NOTE:  THIS IS A WALKING TOUR AND WILL INCLUDE EXTENSIVE WALKING OVER VARYING TERRAIN. DRESS AND PREPARE ACCORDINGLY.

As with all our spring seminars the registration fee  includes a Friday night reception and presentation, followed by Saturday’s all-day program in the field. In addition to detailed tours and presentations by expert Licensed Battlefield Guides, participants will receive transportation, maps and materials, lunch and refreshments.
