Please join us Saturday, May 18, 2019, from 9 AM until 5 PM and Sunday, May 19. Members of the 62nd Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry Living History Family will be holding an encampment on the Museum grounds. It's a great opportunity for your family to visit with the reenactors and see what camp life involved during the Civil War. There will be demonstrations and events throughout the day, and the museum will be open for tours from 10-5. We have a full display of artifacts, documents and photos from local Armstrong County soldiers and Infantry units. There is no charge for the event. Donations are appreciated.
The 62nd Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry Living History Family will have a small but informative Civil War "Company street" on the grounds in an attempt to raise awareness for the museum and its new and expanded hours of operation. The members of the 62nd family, many who are direct descendants of Civil War veterans, will share their knowledge of the regiment, specifically Company D, which was entirely made up of men and boys from Armstrong County. There will be various demonstrations throughout the event, ranging from infantry tactics to ladies roles and attire and of course, we will be honored to share the stories of our ancestors.
