Cambria County in the Civil War

Civil_WarBeginning in 2011, the entire country began preparations to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the start of the American Civil War. While Cambria County was not the location of a major military action, there was considerable support for the war effort. This collection contains diaries  and other information documenting Cambria County’s participation.

As part of the Civil War commemoration, a collection of letters was digitized that while connected to the history of Centre County, proved to be so valuable a resource as to be contained herein.
