As the nation marks the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, Pennsylvania invited travelers to Harrisburg last November to participate in a story largely unknown to most Americans — the Pennsylvania Grand Review.
The Grand Review served as a commemoration to the November 1865 event of the same name, organized by the women of Harrisburg. It was meant to honor the United States Colored Troops (U.S.C.T.) from 25 states who were not permitted to participate in the Grand Review of the Armies, a military procession and celebration held May 23-24, 1865 in Washington, D.C., following the end of the Civil War.
The Grand Review included exhibition, presentation, and conservation projects that revealed the hidden histories of the USCT. This commemoration culminated November 4-7, 2010 in Harrisburg.
Grand Review Brochure, includes event, parade, and parking information along with must-see attractions in the region.
