Fulton County celebrates Heritage Days

Three days of fun June 13, 14 & 15

Set aside June 13, 14, and 15 to enjoy the many events at Fulton County Heritage Days 
during the entire weekend in scenic, rural Fulton County, Pa.

The weekend starts Friday, June 13 at 10 a.m. with an official Proclamation at the
Fulton County Court House to start both the annual Strawberry Festival and Fulton County Heritage Days. There's a full list of activities on Crossroads Calendar.

Fulton County holds a unique place in Civil War History: it's where the first two 
Confederate soldiers were killed north of the Mason-Dixon Line in 1863 and the site of 
the last Confederate Bivouac north of the Mason-Dixon Line in 1864. In 1863, Gen 
Imboden’s troops were in Fulton and Western Franklin Counties in late June 1863 as part 
of GEN Lee’s Gettysburg Campaign. W.M. Moore, Virginia and F. A. Shelton, North 
Carolina were killed one day before one of the worst battle of the civil war – the Battle of 
Gettysburg. On 30 July 1864, Generals McCausland and Johnson bivouacked in Fulton 
County after they burned the town of Chambersburg, PA earlier that same day. 

Many of the weekend's events commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the last Confederate bivouac and are listed on Crossroads Weekend Calendar.
