      PPM was the home of former Pa Governor Samuel Pennypacker. Pennypacker served in
      the 26th Pa emergency unit at Gettysburg. The home was also the headquarters of
      George Washington before and after the battle of Germantown. Pennypacker is
      also the cousin of Galusha Pennypacker, youngest Union General. The Governor
      was a collector of CW memorabilia which is on display at the house.
      For further info, please contact me privately.
