There will also be a memorial ceremony at the Corbit’s Charge monument to honor the legacy of the soldiers who fought in the 1863 battle. We will also be dedicating a new gravestone for Samuel Butler a local U.S.C.T. soldier. This ceremony concludes with a wreath laying and firing salute at the graves of 1st Lt. John Murray and U.S.C.T. Samuel Butler located at Ascension Episcopal Church, 23 North Court Street in Westminster.

Keynote Lecture: Fake News and the Decline of Civility
Jun 26 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Deputy Managing Editor of The Kiplinger Letter and a Consultant for ABC News, award-winning journalist David Morris has spent much of his career as a wire service political reporter, including nearly 14 years with The Associated Press and as chief White House correspondent for Bloomberg News, covering Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. As citizens, we find ourselves in a new and evolving era of multiple news sources. Charges of “fake news” fly in all directions and the fourth estate is seemingly under siege. More than ever before, your personal news source(s) are most likely indicators of your political identity. What is journalism’s future? How shall we find common ground? How do we re-establish credible journalism in this age of fake news? See http://www.commongroundonthehill.org/tw_PM_events.html for additional information.
