Civil War Sesquicentennial Exhibit Opens At National Archives

On April 30 “Discovering the Civil War,” a major new exhibit marking the 150th anniversary of the Civil War opened at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.

“Discovering the Civil War” will be shown in two parts in Washington, D.C. Part One, “Beginnings,” will run from April 30, 2010, through September 6, 2010, in the Lawrence F. O’Brien Gallery in the National Archives Building. Part Two, “Consequences,” will open in the O’Brien Gallery on November 10, 2010. After the Washington venue closes on April 17, 2011, the two parts of “Discovering the Civil War” will be combined and travel to seven additional venues around the country beginning in June 2011.
