3:30 p.m. – Morgan’s Raiders
Join Tim Crumrin, Historian at Conner Prairie Living History Museum, as he details Morgan’s Raid — a highly publicized incursion by Confederate cavalry into the Northern states of Indiana and Ohio during the American Civil War. The raid took place from June 11–July 26, 1863, and is named for the commander of the Confederates, Brig. Gen. John Hunt Morgan. For 46 days as they rode over 1,000 miles, Morgan’s Confederates covered a region from Tennessee through Kentucky and Indiana to northern Ohio. The raid coincided with the Vicksburg Campaign and the Gettysburg Campaign, although it was not directly related to either campaign. However, it served to draw the attention of tens of thousands of Federal troops away from their normal duties and strike fear in the civilian population of several Northern states. This free program will be held in the Hope Town Square Shelterhouse (Rain/Severe Cold location: Yellow Trail Museum)
6:45 p.m. – Red Bank ReUnion Band Theatrical Concert
Rally, Rally Round the Band! The Red Bank ReUnion Band offers a glimpse into the lives of Indiana bandsmen during this pivotal period in the American experience — performing their “uniquely Hope” multimedia program in the sanctuary of the historic Hope Moravian Church. To commemorate the sesquicentennial of the American Civil War, the group has compiled a fascinating program using the songs and stories of the Hope Indiana Cornet Band. Much of this music had not been heard for countless decades until a rather miraculous discovery in an Illinois museum. The presentation melds musical images and memories into a sepia collage that will both inspire and inform. Join with the band as they march boldly forward to explore religion and politics through the music of this bygone era. No admission will be charged, however a Free-will donation is appreciated. The Hope Moravian Church is located at 202 Main Street, three blocks south of the Hope Town Square (on State Road 9).
