On the Edge of Battle: Chester County and the Civil War
From 10/19/2012 – 8/31/2013 Philadelphia & the Countryside Exhibition

150 years ago our country was engulfed in turmoil. Battles for hearts and minds raged over union and secession, freedom and slavery. Chester County was not united in support for the Union or President Lincoln, and public meetings and rival newspapers fanned the flames of conflict. Experience the hopes, struggles, victories and losses of local men and women who lived during our nation’s bloodiest war and see how their words and actions echo in our lives today. Exhibition open Wed.-Sat., 9:30-4:30

Time: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
