Celebrate History – January 2021


Artifact of the Month

“This ominous note was left by a Confederate soldier in the 9th Alabama at the farm of George Culp, near Gettysburg. In it, the Alabamian gives a half-hearted apology for “tearing up” the home, and threatens to return again next summer if he Union army does not “quit burning up our houses, turning woman [sic]and children out of doors.”
