Monthly Civil War Roundtable
The Mercer County Historical Society has an ongoing Civil War Display, featuring histories of individuals and units from the county. Although no battles were fought in our area, about 2500 Mercer County men served in the Civil War, and our display honors them. Relics brought back from the war are featured. We also have a collection of transcribed Civil War letters and diaries, and GAR memorabilia.
