|Beginning 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 valuation a resource as to be contained herein.
