Creating the content you read on 47th Pennsylvania Volunteers: One Civil War Regiment’s Story takes time, effort, and money. Thousands of hours and dollars have been spent to date, documenting critical details about the 47th Pennsylvania’s historic service and the lives of its individual members and their families before, during, and after one of the most divisive periods in America’s history.

You can make a difference today by supporting our 2020 GoFundMe campaign, “Honor 9 Black Soldiers of the American Civil War,” which will enable us to purchase, and make publicly available, the military and pension records for nine remarkable heroes who enlisted with the 47th Pennsylvania three months before President Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation.

Or, if you would prefer to contribute to our broader initiative to research and tell the full story of the entire regiment, please consider becoming a Flag Bearer to help make information about the 47th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry available free of charge to teachers, students, family historians, history buffs, and the general public.

Thank you.
