Thanks to the General Meade Society of Philadelphia!
It was a pleasure having The General Meade Society of Philadelphia in town for yesterday’s city-wide Civil War tour of Pittsburgh!
Many thanks to the members of the Society, as well as Allegheny Cemetery, The Pittsburgh Sandwich Society, and Diane Klinefelter of Captain Thomas Espy GAR Post 153 for contributing to the program’s success. We look forward to providing more local programing throughout the Fall and Winter of 2019-2020.
