Pennsylvania State Archives: Summer 2011 Newsletter
Please take a few minutes to read through the Pennsylvania State Archives' Summer 2011 edition of their newsletter Access Archives. The State Archives have been incredibly helpful and supportive of my research, and I encourage you to visit it, and the State Museum located next door. Inside the newsletter you will find some great tid bits on recent "goings on" in the Archives, a few of which are related to Pennsylvania in the Civil War. Also, be sure to check out the recent acquisitions. I know I'll be digging through the Civil War diaries of Cpl. John A. Magee, Co. E, 100th PA, hopefully finding some fascinating Maryland Campaign/Battle of Antietam entries.
