The Civil War in Pennsylvania : a Photographic History
by Michael G. Kraus, David M. Neville, and Kenneth C. Turner

Book Discussion - June 25 at 6:30 pm

     Pennsylvania fulfilled its role as the Keystone State when the Civil War erupted in 1861. Its large size and varied economy contributed 315,000 men and more munitions than any other state, while on the home front, women and children tended to vast farms and filled factory jobs.

     The Civil War in Pennsylvania : a Photographic History represents for the first time in a single volume the story of the war's impact on the state as told through photographs. Hundreds of images from private collections offer a rare glimpse of images seen by only a few people for the past 150 years. (Description from book jacket)
