“We Wished for Night”: Darkness and Night on the Battlefield
July 22, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
This will be the second of three campfire programs over the summer. The campfire programs are a chance for park staff to explore topics that might not be suited to more traditional walking tours. See our full schedule of campfire programs and History at Sunset programs here: https://www.nps.gov/frsp/learn/news/special-summer-programs.htm
For some, night meant relief. For others, it intensified fear. Peter Maugle will look at how battlefields changed when the sun went down, and what it meant for those who had no choice but to endure in place.
