Please join us on Tuesday, April 7, 2015 at 7 p.m. at the Valentine Hall auditorium of the Lutheran Theological Seminary campus for "Suffering And Calamity Will Be Overruled: Pennsylvania College and the Civil War."
Between April 1861 and April 1865, war descended on the nation and warped everything it touched. Here in Adams County we often focus on three days in July. But the war weighed heavy throughout its four years and our local college bore a good deal of that weight.
Join National Park Service Ranger and Gettysburg College adjunct instructor, John M. Rudy, as he delves into how war transformed our country, our town and our next door neighbors at Pennsylvania College. This uniquely Adams County story stretches as far back as the blackbelt of Selma, United States Colored Troops's camps around Tallahassee and the trenches hemming in Lee's army at Petersburg and features the likes of David Wills and David McConaughy in ways you've never seen them before.
This program is free and open to the public thanks to our sponsor, ACNB Bank
