Back from Battle: Lower Merion‘s Civil War Camp Discharge
The final year of the Civil War, a special Union Army post was erected on a hilltop in Lower Merion to handle a jumble of returning citizen-soldiers. Back From Battle reclaims its forgotten history and the lives of the Pennsylvania volunteer soldiers who passed through its gates.
Congratulations, New Board!
