Enjoy a guided walk by lantern light along the wooded trails of Battlefield Park and hear first-hand the moving stories of real characters who found themselves in New Bern in 1862. Not a battlefield tour or a program about the Civil War, these are poignant human stories of their experiences, largely based on letters, diaries, and contemporaneous accounts
