The Luzerne County Historical Society announces that its Battle of Wyoming Walking Tours will run on Saturday and Sunday, September 14 and 15, 2019. Join Luzerne County Historical Society Board Member Stephen B. Killian, Esq., for a first-hand account of the disastrous Battle of Wyoming and the massacre that followed. Attorney Killian will lead the group through the battlefield and talk about the tactics, troops and equipment of the Americans, Tories and the Native Americans, as well as discussing (with an audience-driven demonstration) the infamous flanking maneuver and retreat that lead to the Massacre. Insight about the area before and after the Battle is also included.
This is a two-hour, two-mile outdoor walking tour that takes place rain or shine. Each day, the tour starts at the corner of 4th Street and Susquehanna Avenue in Wyoming at 1 p.m. Cost is $7 for LCHS members, $10 for nonmembers and $5 for all children under 18. Each tour is limited to the first 45 reservations. Reservations are required. To make reservations call 570-823-6244 ext. 3 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
