Hallowed Ground Lantern Tour
Intriguing New Bern history,
a lovely park setting,
& talented local actors
in one magical evening!
Enjoy a guided walk by lantern light along the wooded trails of Battlefield Park and hear first-hand the moving stories of real characters who found themselves in New Bern in 1862.
Not a battlefield tour or a program about the Civil War, these are poignant human stories of their experiences, largely based on letters, diaries, and contemporaneous accounts.
Next tour spring 2023. Watch here for details.
