Walking Tour at Laurel Hill Cemetery on Sunday, August 8, 2021, at 10:00 am
Leadership in war has had a profound effect on individual battles on both sides of the conflict, thus heavily influencing the final outcome of the conflict. Approximately fifty Generals, countless officers, and enlisted men who played an important role in war are now laid to rest in the ‘Valhalla of Philadelphia’ that is Historic Laurel Hill. This walking tour will examine the triumphs and failures that made some men household names and others lost to history. While their bodies may be gone, the final impact of their leadership—or lack thereof—is still realized today.
This walking tour will take place on Sunday, August 8, 2021, at 10:00 am departing from Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Gatehouse entrance at 3822 Ridge Avenue Philadelphia, PA 19132.
