The original Penn Charter that established Pennsylvania in 1681 will be on display for one week only at The State Museum of Pennsylvania. The document will go on display on Charter Day, Sunday, March 10, which is the 332nd birthday of Pennsylvania. Also on display will be a Civil War era note written by Governor Andrew Curtin on June 16, 1863, ordering the defense of Pennsylvania's border from "the Rebel Invader." The document underscores the anxious days just before the Battle of Gettysburg, as General Lee's Confederate army crossed the Mason-Dixon Line.  Admission is free on Charter Day.
