Jump INN to History, Civil War Sesquicentennial

150th Anniversary of the Civil War:  For all of the history buffs...this is the 150th anniversary of the Civil War and Pennsylvania is the perfect place to celebrate our American heritage.  From Philadelphia to Pittsburgh, Gettysburg to the Alleghenies and Valleys of the Susquehanna, people of the Commonwealth are taking pride in their state's contributions. The Alleghenies and Susquehanna Valley region produced several notable Civil War figures, including Nicholas Biddle, the 65-year-old African American who was the first to shed blood in the war; Elizabeth Schwalm, a mother of five toddlers who had to protect the family farm when her husband went off to war; and Andrew Curtin, the Pennsylvania governor during the Civil War responsible for organizing the Loyal War Governor’s Conference.  Battlefields, Underground Railroad stops, Civil War Trails and museums galore! Pennsylvania’s unique and varied regions offer a wealth of fascinating attractions and historic sites for an enlightening and exciting Civil War adventure.
