Remembrance Day commemorates the anniversary of the 1863 Consecration of the National Cemetery at Gettysburg during which President Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address, always held on a weekend near the actual date of November 19, 1863. The Capt. Thos. Espy Post No. 153 of the GAR is open for tours each Saturday from 11 to 3, but today we as part of our Remembrance Day activities we welcomed back Diane Klinefelter as the curator for the post, and she also gave tours today in authentic dress. Our mayor gave a presentation and reading of the Gettysburg Address.
