Annual Remembrance Illumination

The Gettysburg Foundation presents the 15th Annual Remembrance Illumination at the Soldiers’ National Cemetery, located between Baltimore Pike and Taneytown Road in Gettysburg. This solemn commemoration features a luminary candle on each of the 3,512 Civil War soldier’s graves. Names of the fallen soldiers will be read throughout the evening. Enter the Cemetery through the gate at Taneytown Road or the gate at Baltimore Street. This non-ticketed event is free and open to the public.

The public can support the Gettysburg Foundation with a heartfelt donation to the Remembrance Illumination by sponsoring a candle in honor or memory of a loved one. The cost is $18.63 and sponsorships will be accepted until November 9. More information can be found at
