Important Update: The Civil War Soldier’s Orphans’ Schools of PA

February 13, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Emeritus Archivist at Bethany’s Children’s Home, Carl Bloss, explores the hidden history of the Soldier’s Orphans’ Schools implemented by the State of PA to care for and educate the many orphaned children of the Civil War; In 1863, Bethany Orphan’s Home had already accepted many soldier’s orphans before this program expanded to include 43 institutions across the state.


This event will be hosted on Zoom.


Important Program Update:

Unfortunately, due to unforseen circumstances, we must postpone the program.
We are working with Carl to find an alternate date to host and record the program, and we will be in touch soon with details about a new program date or a link to the recorded program.
We appreciate your flexibility and understanding.
