Six of Pennsylvania’s first eight post–Civil War governors were veterans of the American Civil War. This streak spanned four decades, from the election of John White Geary in 1866 to Samuel W. Pennypacker’s final day in office in January 1907. Even though these individuals rose to great political power, they did not forget their combat memories or neglect their old military comrades. Their war experiences shaped their vision and beliefs.

These leaders had fascinating stories that correspond with practically all significant Civil War military experiences, whether serving in ranks from private to major general, suffering multiple wounds (and even an amputation), or passing through military service without a scratch. Soldiers to Governors relates these experiences and offers a visual celebration of the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission’s Civil War collections. These treasures of the Commonwealth’s history will become your keepsake in this deluxe hardbound edition.
