Hallowed Ground Lantern Tour

Intriguing New Bern history,
a lovely park setting, 
& talented local actors
in one magical evening!  

March 23 - 25, 2023
at New Bern Battlefield Park

Enjoy a guided walk by lantern light along the wooded trails of Battlefield Park and hear first-hand the moving stories of actual historical characters who found themselves in New Bern at the start of the Civil War in 1862.

Not a battlefield tour or a program about the War, these are poignant human stories of the experiences of civilians, combatants, formerly-enslaved persons, and others. These gripping narratives are largely based on letters, diaries, and contemporaneous accounts. 

Watch here for details.
