Rev. Luke Travers… History Teacher

Jul 3, 2011 | All, Luke Travers

For the seventh year in a row, Delbarton’s eighth grade class spent a day at the Gettysburg battlefield, where a three day battle in 1863 changed the momentum of the American Civil War. On a mild November 22nd toured of battlefield from former Headmaster and current history teacher Fr. Luke Travers, OSB, Delbarton’s resident Gettysburg hobbyist.

Fr. Luke described the activities of July 1st, 2nd and 3rd, 1863 and the tour concluded with a trip to the cemetery, site of Lincoln’s famous Gettysburg Address then witnessed a stunning sunset over the battlefield. Dinner at Dobbin House, an authentic 1776 tavern, concluded the excursion and students then boarded the bus for the long ride home.
