Many are familiar with Pennsylvania’s military contributions to the Civil War and later conflicts in the 1900s, but few know about our state’s military force in the 50-year span following the Civil War and our entry into WW1.
Join The NGP History Project and our hosts The Lomas Center over the weekend of October 15-17 as we explore our state’s militia system, and the progression into the early history of our national guard.
Join us Friday night with The NGP History Project where we’ll learn about the state militia and National Guard of Pennsylvania during the post-Civil War years, up through the turn of the century, local units, and connections to Gettysburg. Presentation begins at 6pm. We will try to live stream the presentation for those who are unable to make it.
On Saturday, 11am–6pm, and Sunday 11am–5pm, there will be a display of the uniforms, equipment, and arms used by the men of our state militia and national guard from 1866-1900. Come visit and see the similarities compared to what was used during the Civil War, as well as how things evolved at the start of a new century.
The NGP History Project is committed to exploring the history, research, and events concerning the National Guard of Pennsylvania from the 1866 – 1916.
