Nov., 20, 2010, Gettysburg, PA. – Saturday evening more than 3,500 flickering candles illuminated the graves of fallen Civil War soldiers buried in the Soldiers’ National Cemetery in Gettysburg. As hundreds of people strolled the grounds on this comfortable late November evening the tiny points of light honoring the memory of those who fought so bravely on battlefields long ago made a solemn impression. Every half-hour a lone bugler off in the distance played taps, as Civil War reenactors patrolled the grounds. This was the 8th annual Remembrance Illumination sponsored by the Gettysburg Foundation.
