Summer 2006 Civil War Exhibit

For the entire summer, Hunter Library is featuring an exhibit on Civil War history and themes—located in several display cases on our main floor. Among featured items are authentic home and battlefield items from the period (including those from a Cherokee County family), as well as reproductions. Historical themes include the role of women in the Civil War; the enlistment of Native Americans, African-Americans and Mexican-Americans in the war effort; the flourishing of visual and performing arts during the period; and the internal politics of President Lincoln’s war cabinet.

We invite all to visit us this summer and view the exhibit—and to remember that, for more information, our general collection has a rich variety of books on this important regional and national topic.

Letters and photographs from the Civil War period can be viewed online at
