The Gettysburg Foundation presents the Annual Remembrance Illumination at the Soldiers’ National Cemetery, located between Baltimore Pike and Taneytown Road in Gettysburg. The commemoration features a luminary candle on each of the 3,512 Civil War soldiers' 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.
