The Grand Army of the Republic Civil War Museum and Library

A museum display with a cannon in the center surrounded by glass casesThe Grand Army of the Republic Civil war Museum and Library is the single museum in the City of Philadelphia dedicated to the history of the Civil War. The museum is the direct descendant of the Memorial Hall Museum of Grand Army of the Republic (G.A.R.) Post 2 of Philadelphia. Our collection consists of singularly historic artifacts, relics, photographs, documents, memorabilia, and an extensive research archive. We are pleased to present a select group of artifacts, relics and photographs that express the bravery of the men who gave so much for their beliefs during the four years of the Civil War. Each of these items has a historical provenance from the original Post 2 collection.

Colony to Community: The Story of New Sweden

Colony to Community: The Story of New Sweden describes the journey of Swedes and Finns who came to the Delaware Valley in 1638 to establish the New Sweden Colony, an outpost to give Sweden a foothold in the growing fur and tobacco trades. From landfall in Wilmington, Delaware in 1638 and cultivating peaceful trade relationships with the Lenape and Susquehannock Indians, to suffering relentless pressure from the Dutch and eventual abandonment by the Homeland, this exhibit explores the countless obstacles that New Sweden colonists endured.

Through rare collection objects, historic documents and images, this traveling exhibition explores the origins of the New Sweden Colony, the cultural endurance of the
settlement that made it possible for Swedes and Finns to continue to immigrate to the area in the 18th and 19th centuries and how we preserve the past by commemorating New Sweden’s legacy today.

Carved in Stone: American Monuments, Myths, and Memory

The Abraham Lincoln Foundation of the Union League (ALF) is proud to participate in the 2019 OAH Conference.
