Wesley Culp is part of Gettysburg’s Civil War lore – a former Gettysburg resident who fought and died as a Confederate soldier at the Battle of Gettysburg, in the shadow of Culp’s Hill.
Join author Tom McMillan on a one-hour, four-block walking tour of town to learn the story of Wesley and his family, including his sisters, who lived on West Middle Street during the battle in July 1863, and his brother, William, a soldier in the Union Army.
Tour: We will start near the town square, where Wesley entered Gettysburg with his regiment on July 1; move on to Chambersburg Street, where he once worked as an apprentice for a prominent carriage maker, who eventually took him to the South; and finish on West Middle Street, where he had an emotional reunion with his sisters the night before he was killed in action.
