Corbit's Charge



Brief Summary of the Event

Each year during the last full weekend in June, the Pipe Creek Civil War Round Table and other historical groups commemorate the tragedy of war that took place on Westminster’s streets and within surrounding Carroll County, MD. The annual event exhibits a great experience for visitors of all ages.


The paramount activity is a memorial service on Saturday June 26 held at the Corbit’s Charge Monument (Located at Court Place, by the Historic Courthouse). This service recognizes the sacrifice of the Civil War era civilians of Westminster as well as the soldiers of both the Union and Confederate Armies. This service concludes at the graveyard of Westminster’s Ascension Episcopal Church located at 23 N. Court St. with the laying of wreaths on the graves of 2 Civil War Veterans: 1st Lt. John Murray, Co. E 4th Virginia Cavalry (Confederate, killed during Corbit’s Charge) and Samuel Butler Co. C 32nd Inf. U.S.C.T. (Union).


So, please join the Pipe Creek Civil War Roundtable and fellow historical groups in attendance at the 2021 Corbit's Charge event to honor and commemorate the Civil War history in Carroll County, MD.
