As part of the commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War and in partnership with the statewide Pennsylvania Civil War 150 efforts, the Senator John Heinz History Center has developed a new traveling exhibit, The Civil War in Pennsylvania.
Nine local historical organizations are currently confirmed to host The Civil War in Pennsylvania exhibit and a total of 40 or more sites throughout the region will eventually host it, each for a period of three to four weeks.
It will be on display during DelGrosso's HarvestFest on September 28, 29 and 30.
