3rd Annual History Encampment

Penn State Altoona students learn to use a Civil War telegraph at last year's encampment.

The Penn State Altoona History Society is pleased to host its 3rd Annual History Encampment on Friday April 9. Student and community members will have the opportunity to interact with Civil War and World War II "living historians" dressed in period clothing and equipment. Members of the 110th Pennsylvania and 101st Airborne will be present. Students will also be able to have historical caricatures done of themselves in addition to dressing up and posing for their own old fashioned Civil War photo. The encampment will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the lawns between the Misciagna and Hawthorn Buildings on campus. All of the days activities are free and open to the general public.
