A shining spot in Harrisburg, PA’s landscape is the American Civil War Museum, one of the few museums in the country which actively pursues the concept of presenting both sides of the war which divided American in 1861-1865.

Due to a failing economy with fewer travelers, the museum went to partial openings several months ago, but they have now reopened full time, we are told today in a press release.


With some 24,000 artifacts and treasures including Robert E. Lee’s Bible, the museum’s holdings are said to be in the fifth million dollar range, well presented and with an eye toward the discriminating civil war history buff as well as the normal tourist.

It’s well worth a trip to Harrisburg just to see it.
