The Civil War: An American Turning Point

From 1861 to 1865, the country was in a military and social revolution. How we define freedom, liberty, patriot, and nation today is directly related to the diverse experiences of the individuals who participated in the Civil War. This program encourages students to consider how an historical even can influence and address the questions of today. What was lost? What was gained? What issues were decided and which were left uncertain? Using replica artifacts and pictures, this program relates the personal experiences of the free and enslaved men, women, and children of the war. Topics include the causes of the war, life of a Civil War soldier, war-time medicine, new technology used and much more.
