GRAND COMMEMORATION- THE 150TH ANNIVERSARY OF “THE SHELLING OF CARLISLE”
Monday, July 1 2013 In commemoration of what is probably the single most significant and emotional event in the long, proud history of Carlisle, Historic Carlisle will present “The Shelling of Carlisle- July 1, 1863” on the 150th anniversary of the Shelling. On the evening of July 1, 1863, Confederate Calvary forces, commanded by Major General JEB Stuart demanded the surrender of Carlisle and the Union forces, commanded by Union General William “Baldy” Smith. The confederate general threatened to subject the town to artillery fire if the town was not surrendered. “Baldy” Smith answered the challenge, “Shell Away and be Damned”!
In the course of about seven hours, some 130-140 artillery shells were fired on Carlisle by the Confederate forces from the east side of the town. Other southern troopers set fire to buildings at Carlisle Barracks and the Carlisle Gas Works. But the town and its defending Union soldiers held fast through the long night and by daybreak, the Confederate Calvary had been recalled to join the Battle of Gettysburg, already in progress.
The Grand Commemoration will take place at 7:00 pm, the exact time when the shelling began in 1863. All four streets from the Square will be closed at 6:30. The Carlisle Town Band will perform before the ceremonies and program at 7:00. Military and civilian re-enactors will be on hand to act out the story as it is read on a large PA system. Including will be both Confederate and Union artillery, infantry, Gen. Smith and Gen. Stuart, civilian “Home Guard”, and others.
Following the 30 minute program, Historic Carlisle will conduct downtown tours of “Lee’s Calling Cards”. Interpreters in 19th century attire will lead groups to sites in the immediate area which were scarred by the artillery shells. The tours will last about 70 minutes.
All events are free to the public. Also visit the Trout Gallery at Dickinson College where there is an exhibit currently running entitled “First Hand Civil War Era Drawings” from the Becker Collection from June 7 – October 19, 2013. Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
