The Civil War on the Homefront: Impact and Innovations
Jun 26 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Local historian and reenactor, Michael Jesberger, will bring us to two fronts during the Civil War; the role and contributions of the women of our region; and life at Camp Willliam Penn in Cheltenham, PA.

While families sent their sons, fathers, husbands, and brothers to the war, ladies were also active participants!  Our women played prominent roles in creating and maintaining “aid societies” that included medical service, sewing clothing, making bandages and packing food and other needs.  Hear more about what it was like for women (and children) behind the lines during the American War.

Camp William Penn was located in the La Mott section of Cheltenham, and was the training ground for Civil War African-American soldiers.  Join us in hearing the story of that historic camp in our region, and how the local community interacted.

The Annex is in a strip center adjacent to the Church.  Attendance is Free of Charge (at will donations are appreciated).
