The binding had been broken, and the book in need of repair, when discovered by 148th and 125th P.V.I. re-enactor groups during the February 2016 “Centre County Reads” program for Karen Abbott’s book, “Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy.”
Members of the Colonel James E. Crowther Camp #89 Sons of Union Veterans donated time and money to have the book repaired at Wert Bookbinding in Grantville, PA.
The book is now on display at the Miles-Hume Historical House in Bellefonte, PA. All are encouraged to visit the museum’s PA History Room to enjoy this and other beautiful pieces of our local history!
