USCT The Pennsylvania Grand Review

Camp William Penn

The Pennsylvania Grand Review will serve as a commemoration of the November 1865 event of the same name organized by the women of Harrisburg in November of 1865 to honor the United States Colored Troops (USCT).  Although nearly 180,000 USCT soldiers fought and served during the Civil War, they 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 PA Grand Review will include exhibition, presentation, and conservation projects that will reveal the hidden histories of the USCT. This commemoration will culminate November 3-7, 2010 in Harrisburg.
