Upcoming Events

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we currently cannot conduct programs in person. However, we have shifted to offering virtual programming covering a wide range of topics. These live-stream programs take place on our Facebook page and will also available for viewing on our Youtube page after the live-stream event! 

Upcoming Events:

July 6 – 9, 2021- “A desperate thing to do”- Jubal Early’s 1864 Maryland Campaign, Facebook:

The summer months of 1864 will prove to be the pivotal time of the American Civil War. The military situation across the board had become locked in a stalemate and the political realities of an election year were setting in. While the main eastern armies remained around Richmond and Petersburg, the action shifted towards the Shenandoah Valley.
A vital region to the Confederacy, northern forces will attempt again and again to wrestle it away to no avail. By the end of June, Confederate General Jubal Early has lead his undermanned but still powerful Army of the Valley to the banks of the Potomac River. His objective: invade Maryland and threaten Washington, D.C.
Join the staff of the GTM Center and distinguished guest as we follow Early’s campaign into Maryland in July 1864. We will visit sites associated with the ransoming of Hagerstown on July 6, 1864 and examine the battle that saved Washington, the Battle of Monocacy, fought on July 9, 1864.
Videos will appear on the main GTM Center Facebook page. For more information, click here.
