Holy Redeemer High School
The Journalism Class of Holy Redeemer High School recently participated in an educational field trip to the Gettysburg National Military Park. Following a day of battlefield touring and subject specific presentations, the students were recognized by park personnel for their participation and historical knowledge. The participants followed the trek of New York Times journalist, Samuel Wilkeson, who had originally been assigned to cover the epic battle, only to learn of the mortal wounding, and eventual death upon the battlefield of his son, Bayard. The students also studied the battlefield photos of famed Civil War photographers Matthew Brady and Alexander Gardner. Chaperones for the day included Dr. James McKeown, John Kurilla, Mary Finkernagel, Janice Flannery, and Charles Flannery, journalism instructor and trip organizer.
