Sesquicentennial Panel Exhibits Available
In commemoration of the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War, the Civil War Museum created two six-panel exhibits entitled, 1861: The Upper Middle West's Civil War and 1862: A War on Multiple Fronts. Each 36" x 24" exhibit panel (available individually or as a group) tells the story of one of the six states of the Upper Midwest during the first two years of the war. Perfect for libraries, class rooms, museums, and historical societies, each panel uses period newspaper accounts, photographs, letters, and drawings to tell the state's story.
