GYY: The Great Johnstown Flood of 1889

On May 31, 1889, a neglected dam and a phenomenal storm led to a catastrophe in which 2,209 people died. It's a story of great tragedy, but also of triumphant recovery. This was one of the worst American man-made tragedy prior to September 2011.

GYY: Announcing Glenn’s Yesteryear

Gettysburg Address - Reenactment

One of the things the group did while in Gettysburg during the summer of 2015 was to reenact the reciting of the Gettysburg Address.  Of course, we all had our recorders going at the time to see if we stirred anything up, and what most people don’t know, the Gettysburg Address was actually given within the confines of an established cemetery, not the Soldiers’ National Cemetery.

The Angel of Gettysburg

When people talk about women of Gettysburg, the most prominent resident that comes to mind is that of Miss Virginia “Jennie” Wade; however, there is a story that is even as compelling than that of Miss Jenny, and that is the story of Elizabeth Masser Thorn.
