2012 Journal of York County Heritage now available

Just out–the brand new 2012 edition of Journal of York County Heritage, a popular periodical published annually by York County Heritage Trust. The new edition offers five well-researched articles on a variety of events from the 19th and 20th centuries.

They include:

The Cartridge Box: The Inside-Out Newspaper of the U.S. Army General Hospital, York,” by Jean Hershner Brannan.

“’An Accident of War:’ York County’s Civil War Damage Claims” by Scott L. Mingus, Sr. and Thomas M. Mingus.

“The City of York Had a Tabernacle” by Elmer Q. Gleim.

“A Community Story: The Bambergers Migrate North and Beyond” by Kiara Banks and Justine Landis.

“The People of Lewis Miller” by June Lloyd.

In addition–following in the tradition of the 2010 and 2011 journals–transcriptions of five more letters written by James Smith, York County’s signer of the Declaration of Independence, are included in the 2012 journal.

The new 2012 journal is $6.95. The equally successful 2011 Journal of York County Heritage is now available at the bargain price of $4.95, and you can get the 2010 edition for just $2.95. An even better deal is both the 2012 and 2011 journals together for $9.95, or all three years(2012, 2011 and 2010) for only $12.95. Since the subject is history, the journals never get outdated. I find they make great “hostess gifts.”

You can purchase copies at the York County Heritage Trust Museum shop, 250 East Market Street, York, PA from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Copies can be mailed for an additional shipping charge. Go to the YCHT website, or call 717-848-1587 or email kredshaw@yorkheritage.org. The journals will also be available at the YCHT’s Agricultural and Industrial Museum at 217 West Princess Street from 10 a.m to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
