the intent to educate and keep Shippensburg's involvement in the Civil War alive. March To Destiny established this annual event
in 2001. Visitors to the Cumberland Valley travel from far and wide to enjoy
this family friendly event. Experience a soldier's encampment life. Explore or schedule of events for more exciting opportunities to hear lectures, period music and witness living history demonstrations.
This event will be held entirely on the Shippensburg Fairgrounds in 2013. The looting/foraging by Confederates of Downtown will still occur. The Civil War Ball and other activities will be postponed until next year in consideration of the redirection of resources to the Gettysburg 150th celebration.
The March to Destiny reenactment is supported by the Cumberland Valley Visitors Bureau, gifts, grants and other donations. Stay overnight and enjoy the
hospitality of the Cumberland Valley. The March to
Destiny committee welcomes you to the 2013 event!
