In May 1865, Washington D.C. hosted a Grand Review for Union armies. However, African American regiments were not invited to participate in this celebration. In response, residents of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania organized an alternative Grand Review for these veterans on November 14, 1865. Join Dr. Frank Smith, Director of the African American Civil War Museum in Washington, DC for a discussion about the Pennsylvania Grand Review and its significance.
