THE HUFFMAN LETTERS

The MCHS is proud to present our Civil War Roundtable featuring: THE HUFFMAN LETTERS On Tuesday, January 10, 2017, the Mercer County Historical Society presents a program on the “Huffman Letters.” In 1861, sixteen year old William Henry Huffman of Darlington Township, Beaver County, enlisted in the Union Army. As part of the 100th PA regiment (Roundheads) based in Lawrence County, he participated in over 20 battles, including Fredericksburg and Vicksburg. Fast forward until the 2000’s, a family donates a chest to the Little Beaver Historical Society and it is examined by Jay Paisley. He discovered a series of letters by Huffman to his family. He took these letters and created a book. He will be here on January 10, 2017, to tell us about this young man and his experiences during the Civil War. The doors open at 6:30 PM; the program starts at 7:00, and should end around 9:00. Please join us.
