Brief Summary of the Event, according to the Pipe Creek Civil War Round Table website: https://pipecreekcivilwarroundtable.weebly.com/corbits-charge-encampment.html June 23, 2018

Each year during the last weekend in June, the Pipe Creek Civil War Round Table (PCCWRT) and other historical groups commemorate the tragedy of war that took place on Westminster’s streets and within surrounding Carroll County, MD. The annual event exhibits a great experience for visitors of all ages by providing children’s activities, concerts, military demonstrations, vignette skits, skirmishes between the armies, and presentations by living historians. Traditional artisans, such as blacksmiths and tinsmiths, will be present at the event. There are also guided tours of Westminster detailing the historic landmarks of the city and battle. Authors, local historic societies, and historic artifacts will be featured inside the Emerald Hill house.

The paramount activity will be a memorial service on Saturday June 23rd located at the Corbit’s Charge Monument at 200 Willis St. which recognizes the sacrifice of the Civil War era civilians of Westminster as well as the soldiers of both the Union and Confederate Armies. This memorial service concludes at the graveyard of Westminster’s Ascension Episcopal Church located at 23 N. Court St. with the laying of two wreaths on the graves of 2 Civil War Veterans: 1st Lt. John Murray, Co. E 4th Virginia Cavalry (Confederate, killed during Corbit’s Charge) and Samuel Butler Co. C 32nd Inf. U.S.C.T. (Union)

So, please join the Pipe Creek Civil War Roundtable and fellow historical groups in attendance at the 155th Anniversary Corbit’s Charge Encampment to honor and commemorate the Civil War history in Carroll County, MD.
