After removing a trio of Confederate historical markers an hour west of Gettysburg, the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission has replaced two with significant revisions that view Confederate milestones through a more critical lens.
The McConnellsburg, Fulton County, markers and plaques commemorate the first deaths of Confederate soldiers in Pennsylvania and the site of the Southern army's last encampment here. The state removed them in September of 2020, capping a review initiated by the state historical commission and Gov. Tom Wolf's office following deadly violence in Charlottesville, Va., three years prior.
