A guided tour of Civil War veteran burials at Silverbrook!

The Niles District Library' Local History Day will be all about the Niles' role in the Civil War! Friends of Silverbrook is working with the library on that event and, as part of the program, will be doing a "walking tour" of the cemetery.

Part of the grounds of the Silverbrook served as a "mustering" area for troops during the Civil War and many of the veterans of the war are buried there!

At 4:30 p.m. Friends of Silverbrook with assistance from the Brandywine High School History Club will offer a tour of the some of the graves of our Civil War heroes.

The tour will start at the main gate at 4:30 p.m.  There is no charge and the public is encouraged to attend!
