If you live in the area, or somewhat near the area, and you have an interest in the Civil War Veterans and their lives, this is definitely worth seeing. The video resolution isn't too high, but the story is there...

Inside the room, there is a grand photograph of members of two local GAR posts, standing in front of the Carnegie Library. Very few of the veterans are identified. If you are knowledgeable about PA Regiments, you might be able to add to the names, but its a tall order. Not surprisingly, many local residents, have no idea this exists.
