Civil War Trails and Beyond: Pittsburgh and Its Countryside
Civil War Trails and Beyond All roads lead to history

Duration: Two days and two nights

Even though it didn't see any ground action, Western Pennsylvania used its industrial might and a lot of heart to play a crucial role in the Union victory. The Iron City built steamboats, train cars and forged tons of iron, while the Fort Pitt Foundry churned out a major bulk of the government's weaponry and supplies. The people here also selflessly kept the energy going on the Underground Railroad with countless lives saved. It's a region of stories, neighborhoods and timeless inspiration, not to mention an epic sandwich piled high with meat and fries. So get ready for a roadtrip you'll wish you could reenact all over again.
