If you are looking for something to do this summer, consider a day trip to Harrisburg to see these flags up close and personal, because it is an amazing experience. Jason Wilson is a wealth of knowledge and will make your visit to the new Pennsylvania Civil War Battle Flag Education Center a memorable one. Please help support the Capitol Preservation Committee because without work, these treasures of our nations cultural heritage would not still be in existence today.
