Special displays this year:

The Pennsylvania Archives will have a display on its current project to restore and conserve the Civil War Regimental Muster Rolls. You will have an opportunity to see these important research documents up close and hear about the conservation project.

There will also be a small display on the return of the Pennsylvania Colors Ceremony on July 4, 1866, in Philadelphia, including perhaps the only known surviving example of an “Orphan’s Flag” given to soldiers’ orphans who marched in the parade.
