Welcome to the National Civil War Field Music School!


The 2020 National Civil War Field Music School is sponsored by Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine and the Lambertville Living History Association. On this website you will find much information about this exciting training opportunity for Civil War field musicians, including background on field music schools of the 19th century, bios of the outstanding music faculty and military staff who will be leading the school, and registration forms and guidelines to help you prepare for your arrival and participation. Field musicians ages 11 through adult are welcome, and there are also opportunities for military and civilian volunteers.

Please take some time to look around, read the information that's posted, and let us know if you have any questions via our contact page. We look forward to seeing you in June!
