Experience History Through the Eyes of Those Who Lived It
Some of the most compelling aspects of the Civil War weren’t the bloody battles or sweeping campaigns, but the personal stories. The journey to freedom for the area’s African-American population. The terror, boredom and camaraderie of the soldiers on both sides. The anguished life-and-death decisions made by military and political leaders. The suffering and sacrifices of local civilians and residents. All of these and more are chronicled by our informative, interactive Civil War trails , itineraries and exhibits.
