Landis Valley Museum in Lancaster County, Pa., hosts Civil War Days: Part 2

The Landis Valley Museum hosted a two-day event commemorating the American Civil War this past weekend. One of the highlights was a Civil War encampment, complete with Union soldiers doing firing, drill, and march instruction. The company of Union generals was also present, as were dozens of civilian living historians. The Lancaster Civil War Round Table hosted a series of special speakers on a variety of Civil War topics.

The Lancaster CWRT is already planning a similar, even larger, event next year to mark the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Campaign and its impact on southern Pennsylvania.

Here are some more photos of the Landis Valley Museum.
