Join our Curator of Military & Industrial History Robert Hill to explore our Pennsylvania at War exhibit. This exhibit explores the USS Pennsylvania, flagship of the U.S. Navy which was damaged during the bombing of Pearl Harbor, 75 year ago this December 7. Including a 6-foot ship model, the centerpiece from the ship’s silver service, uniforms, and personal effects of crew members, the display commemorates the ship’s incredible witness to history. In addition, a companion exhibit, World War I Posters from the Pennsylvania State Archives, provides a glimpse at the means by which valued American symbols and ideals were used to mobilize the country for war in Europe. The exhibit presents a sample of the nearly 500 posters in the collections of the Pennsylvania State Archives.
