Cumberland County Civil War Soldiers
Posted by: Dennis Brandt (ID *****0169) Date: July 25, 2011 at 08:43:52

I am writing a history of the 130th Pennsylvania Infantry, a Civil War regiment recruited largely, although not exclusively, in Cumberland County. I am seeking to obtain copies (not originals) of letters, diaries, recollections, and photos of and by the men of the regiment. I am especially seeking undiscovered nuggets of written history lying fallow in a trunk in Grandma's attic or tucked away long forgotten in small historical societies. Any assistance will be most graciously received, and you will get your name in the book as a source. I, of course, will pay all reasonable reproduction costs.
