Southern Revolutionary War Institute
The Southern Revolutionary War Institute (SRWI) was established on July 7, 2006. Utilizing the Historical Center of York County’s library, archives, and historical collections, the Institute fills a void in Revolutionary War studies and scholarly resources, which traditionally have concentrated on the Northern campaigns of the American Revolution.
The SRWI is open during the Historical Center of York County’s regular hours of operation: Monday through Friday, 10:00am – 4:00pm. Culture & Heritage Museums’ historian, Zach Lemhouse, serves as the institute’s research director.
In addition to serving as a scholarly research center, the Southern Revolutionary War Institute offers academic internships and volunteer opportunities, publishes scholarly books and articles and presents ongoing public educational programs.
