The Grand Army of the Republic was a veteran's organization limited to Union soldiers in the American Civil War. The Capt. Thomas Espy post located in Carnegie PA was unique in that they agreed to donate their belongings to the library after the last member died in exchange for free rent in the library building. The last member died in the 1930's. The room was left locked up and forgotten for many years. A few years back, someone from the library opened up the door to discover this perfectly intact GAR post- The day I visited the room was the last day it will be available to public for the next year since the library will be restoring the room and its artifacts to ensure their preservation.
Last Friday the Knights endured a hard fought eighty minutes at Headingley Stadium as they lost out to, league-leaders, Yorkshire Carnegie. Following an impressive opening forty the Knights were subjected to an impressive forwards display from the hosts but recovered well to battle back and pick up a losing bonus point.
Long time followers of my channel may remember a video I posted 5 years ago of the Espy Post of the Grand Army of the Republic inside Carnegie's Carnegie Library. In April 2015, I return for another visit - this time with a far better camera and after the G.A.R. room was restored. This was a part of the Civil War Day the library hosted but the room is open for tours every Saturday. Please pay them a visit if you're ever in the area.

The 1901 Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall (ACFL&MH) sits graciously on a hill above Carnegies Main Street. The facility houses a fine regional library, an acoustically excellent music hall, studios, a lovely reception hall, and—a true national treasure—its Civil War Room. The Thomas Espy Post of the Grand Army of the Republic is one of the seven or eight most intact G.A.R. post in the country. View their profile on PittsburghGives at http://www.pittsburghgives.org

In which John Green teaches you about the Industrial Economy that arose in the United States after the Civil War. You know how when you're studying history, and you're reading along and everything seems safely in the past, and then BOOM you think, "Man, this suddenly seems very modern."
