“I appreciated the Rosenbach for its ﬁne preservation of history. I was particularly enthralled by the letters and newspaper articles that documented the Civil War. I felt as if I was in that time period, surrounded by furniture of the era and having intimate conversations with important ﬁgures in history. It was an enriching learning experience, and I cannot wait to go again!” -Phyllis Yang, U. Penn group tour-ee
