150 Anniversary of the End of the Civil War
April 9, 2015 is the 150th Anniversary of the Surrender of General Robert E. Lee and the Army of Northern Virginia to General Ulysses S. Grant of the Army of the Potomac at Appomattox Court House in Virginia effectively ending the bloody four year long Civil War.
To commemorate the event the National Park Service is trying to get as many churches as possible to ring their bells at 3:15PM on April 9. They are to be rung for four minutes, one minute for each year of the Civil War.
Pennsburg U.C.C. will be participating in this commemoration with Glenn Beard being the bell ringer. Please pass this information along to friends and family near and far to help organize as many churches as possible to participate.
