College featured in NY Times "36 Hours in Gettysburg, Pa."

Gettysburg College and Musselman Library were featured in the June 27 NY Times travel section's "36 Hours in Gettysburg, Pa."

From the NY Times:

Founded in 1832, Gettysburg College (300 North Washington Street; gettysburg.edu) sits on 200 bucolic acres north of the town’s center. Walk among the mostly brick Georgian and Victorian buildings and stop at the stately, white Pennsylvania Hall, an administrative building that was a signal corps station and field hospital for Union and Confederate troops during the battle. Sit in the Adirondack chairs on its expansive lawn, then step into the Musselman Library for the student-curated exhibit “Slaves, Soldiers, Citizens: African-American Artifacts of the Civil War Era,” on view until Dec. 13. In the exhibition, unsettling artifacts like slave collars and shackles are on display next to a United States Colored Troops cap pouch and rifled musket and proof of freedom passes.
