Join Shank’s Mare and guest leader, Civil War enthusiast and author Scott Mingus Sr. to hike the streets of Wrightsville and trace the steps of the Civil War conflict as it comes to the Susquehanna. You’ll venture into little know areas of the town and see where the Union and Confederate troops positioned themselves prior to the burning of the Columbia-Wrightsville Bridge. You’ll hear interesting stories of the town’s people, local militia, and military troops. Wrightsville was a turning point in the Civil War, and you will be intrigued to see how many areas of the town are much the same as this crucial period in our history over 150 years ago. And here's a great idea. Enjoy brunch at The John Wright Restaurant before the hike - give them a call (717-252-0416) to make a reservation and enjoy a lovely day in the Trail Town of Wrightsville.
