Allison-Antrim Museum, 365 South Ridge Avenue, Greencastle, PA will host its 6th Annual Fall Harvest Dinner Fundraiser on Saturday evening, September 30, beginning at 5:30 pm in AAMI’s restored German Bank Barn.


Greencastle’s own From Scratch Catering, with Denise & Paul Hutchison, will prepare the buffet dinner.  The menu includes roasted pork roulade; roasted rosemary and lemon chicken; zucchini, fresh corn and tomatoes; butter whipped potatoes; spinach salad with fresh strawberries and hot bacon dressing; From Scratch yeast rolls; blueberry & strawberry tarts with egg custard and sweetened whipped cream; sparkling lemonade, Blue Heron Blend coffee, and water.  The inspiration for the Fall Harvest menu was chosen from the Schnebly American Cookbook Collection, from the mid-Victorian, Civil War-era “receipts” that might have been prepared by the lady of the home for family meals, circa 1862.

Daniel J. Vermilya, a Civil War historian and National Park Service Ranger at Gettysburg National Military Park, returns this year as the guest speaker for the Fall Harvest Dinner Fundraiser and will present a PowerPoint entitled “From the Battlefield to the White House: The Civil War Careers of Post-Civil War Presidents.”


During the 40 years after the Civil War, every president, except for Grover Cleveland, had one thing in common – they were Civil War veterans.  Join historian Daniel Vermilya to learn more about how the war shaped the lives and careers of Rutherford Hayes, James Garfield, Benjamin Harrison, and William McKinley, all of whom went from the battlefields of the Civil War to the highest office in the land.


Vermilya previously worked at Antietam National Battlefield and Monocacy National Battlefield.  In 2012, he was awarded the first Joseph L. Harsh Memorial Scholar Award by the Save Historic Antietam Foundation.  Vermilya is a native of Kirtland, Ohio and has previously done volunteer work for the James A. Garfield National Historic Site.  He is the author of two books on the American Civil War, including The Battle of Kennesaw Mountain (History Press, 2014) and James Garfield and the Civil War: For Ohio and the Union (History Press, 2015).  Vermilya is currently writing a short history of the Battle of Antietam for the Emerging Civil War Series.  He lives in Frederick, Maryland with his wife Alison.
