More than 180 people danced the night away at the 13th Annual Civil War Preservation Ball in the Pennsylvania State Capitol Rotunda in Harrisburg on April 2.
The ball is sponsored by the Victorian Dance Ensemble, with music provided by Philadelphia Brigade Band.
Proceeds will go to the Pennsylvania Gettysburg Monuments Endowment Trust Fund to provide for periodic maintenance of the more than Pennsylvania 140 monuments and markers on the battlefield.
The previous 12 preservation balls have raised more than $83,000 to help ensure the upkeep of the monuments.
Among the highlights of this year’s ball was the presentation by state Rep. Harry Readshaw of a Legislative Citation to David Klinepeter honoring his 90th birthday. For many years, Klinepeter has portrayed Governor Andrew Curtin, who led Pennsylvania during the Civil War and was a firm supporter of President Abraham Lincoln.
