ALBG Spring 2014 Seminar: Battle of Monocacy  -      The Third Invasion of the North

April 11-12, 2014

The Association of Licensed Battlefield Guides, Inc. announces the 2014 edition of its popular spring single-topic seminar series.  Our spring program this coming year will focus on the near-by and little known Battle of Monocacy near Frederick, Maryland.  A recent book on Gettysburg is titled, inaccurately "The Last Invasion" yet a year after  yet another Confederate army poured through the Shenandoah Valley and into Maryland making it to the outskirts of Washington, D.C.  The one-day Battle of Monocacy  had a great impact on the outcome of the true "Last Invasion."

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.

(Note: This seminar will  involve significant walking over occasionally difficult terrain).

Tour Schedule:

Friday evening, April 11:

We will meet at the GAR Hall on East Middle Street for light refreshments followed by LBG Jim Hueting opening the seminar with a presentation on the famed "Lost Orders" Special Orders #191.  The location of this episode has long been thought to be somewhere on or near the current Monocacy National Park.  Jim will present the results of his year's of research on this topic.. 


Saturday, April 12:

Attendees wil depart from the old Wax Museum parking lot at 8:15 a.m. and will meet with LBG Rich Kohr and LBG Jim Hueting as we travel by van to Monocacy Battlefield where we will spend the day. A box lunch is included in the registration fee and will provide an opportunity to rest and talk over the morning with fellow participants and LBGs.   We anticipate arrival back in Gettysburg approximately 4:30 p.m.


In addition to a welcoming reception on Friday evening, and a full day’s schedule of tours, participants will receive maps, materials, and a box lunch on the battlefield. Transportation is provided via 15-passenger vans. The ALBG is also offering a special, optional Sunday morning tour at no extra charge for all registrants who wish to participate.
