THE NATIONAL CIVIL WAR MUSEUM - Harrisburg, PA








Before you ask, we haven't become complete Civil War nuts, but when you come across the National Civil War Museum, you just have to go. We were only staying about 8 miles away, and it seemed like it would be worthwhile - after we went to Bass Pro Shop, of course. NCWM is privately owned but they have over 4,000 artifacts and 21,000 archival documents. The day we were there we saw ANOTHER Civil War re-enactment done by one of the Pennsylvania Artillery groups. Interesting - the whole thing we had seen the week before in Buchanan; however, this was a much smaller scale - no horses - no cannons. All of the participants were dressed in period costume.
