Allison-Antrim Museum invites the public to enjoy another installment of the Speaker Series on November 10 at 7 PM. John Miller, Executive Director of the Shippensburg Historical Society, will give a presentation on the defense of Pennsylvania during the first two weeks of the Confederate Invasion of Pennsylvania in 1863. The event will be held in the Barn.
Miller will discuss the New York State National Guard joining forces with the Pennsylvania Militia to fortify Harrisburg against a possible attack and stalling the Confederate advance toward Harrisburg. He will also share stories of the men defending the Commonwealth before and after the Battle of Gettysburg.
The event has no admission fee, but donations are welcomed.
