Welcome to the NEW official web site of
the Pipe Creek Civil War Round Table
17 years and counting!
Come Join Us!
Our next meeting will take place on November 19th. Please note that this meeting is on the third Wednesday of the month due to the Thanksgiving holiday. We meet at 7:00 p.m. at the Wellness Center at the Carroll Lutheran Village. Historian Jay Graybeal will present a program "Carroll Countians in the Civil War." The primary focus will be on the Taneytown area.
On November 15th, the annual Remembrance Day Parade will be held in Gettysburg, PA, starting at 1:00 p.m. Due to construction on Steinwehr Road, the parade route will be altered. The parade will turn south (left) on the Taneytown Road and proceed to the National Cemetery.
We're just south of Gettysburg...
We of the Pipe Creek Civil War Round Table ask you to journey with us through a land and time not too far distant. Here in Carroll County, Maryland, we have not lost our connection to the past. The hills still shimmer in the morning sun. Fields of corn still rustle in the breeze. The roads still lead up from Virginia, on to Gettysburg, over the mountains to Antietam. It is only a short ride through time to see the roads clogged with troops, to hear the clatter of Confederate horse on Westminster streets, to witness all the spectacle and tragedy of a country which tore itself apart on our doorstep not too long ago. We remember, and we bid you remember with us.
Join us here in this still quiet corner
of the Maryland countryside and learn of our Civil War heritage. Try to
feel the pain of a border state, rent asunder by politics, driven to the
madness of internecine conflict. Ride with us as we explore the past and
try to take its lessons on into the future. We welcome you in the
present, to Carroll County. Now, we invite you to come back and meet our
Member of THE COMMUNITY FOUNDATION OF CARROLL COUNTY, INC.
