In Lackawanna County- The Civil War Museum is located in the lower level of Scranton City Hall. Joseph Long Junior is curator of the museum. The day Eyewitness News stopped by a group of students from North Pocono Middle School were there on a tour. The teens were very impressed with the artifacts on display. They were able to hold cannon balls and got a taste of snack (Water and Flour) that was popular with the soldiers during the civil war. Long told us the tour gives the young people a chance to touch history and it is something that will stay with them the rest of their lives
Both the Lackawanna County Civil War museum and the Luzerne County Historical society have impressive collections. They are inviting everyone to stop and experience
