Take a Trip Back in Time with Kent Courtney – Hanover Junction Limited

Jul 3, 2016

Ride Time(s):

July 3, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


Author and recording artist Kent Courtney will guide passengers on a trip back in time to the Battle of Gettysburg interspersed with songs of the American Civil War. Kent Courtney says, “These songs have become a part of our consciousness and our shared cultural heritage. We know many of the words and recognize melodies from the deep recesses of our memories. They help to define who we are as a people.”

Experience the moments that Kent brings back to life and gain a new appreciation of the freedoms that we have today.

Recording artist Kent Courtney is frequently on The History Channel, The Discovery Channel, PBS and has been on Good Morning America and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. His CDs are available at the Steam Into History Gift Shop.
