Little Bit of Civil War History in Our Own Backyard

Soon it will be the 150th annversity of the American Civil War. Much of western New York contributed to this conflict. From Camp Brown, to Buffalo to Elmira to West Point. It all had an impact on this war.

While we cannot relive the war, we can revisit it thru the eyes of living historians such as those at the "Echoes Thru Time Museum & Learning Center". It is the ONLY museum entirely dedicated to the war in this area.
