The uniform General George Meade wore while commanding the Union army at the battle of Gettysburg is displayed at the Civil War & Underground Railroad Museum of Philadelphia. Other artifacts on display cover the issues of the black soldier, military tactics and the role of women during the War Between the States. Educational programs involving discussion and lecture are open to the public. The gift shop offers a wide array of merchandise for both the casual visitor and the history buff.
This place is difficult to get to; however, it is worth the drive and the walking.
The museum is displayed very well with a great deal of memoriobilia.
There are many artifacts as well as escutchins which adorn the walls of the entry way.
The personnel are knowledgeable and helpful.
The only problem I can forsee is that for handicapped people there aren't any elevators.
for the civil war buff though, it is a must visit.
