Liberty on the Border - A Civil War Exhibit
A new Exhibit at Museum of the Rockies!
Liberty on the Border explores the Civil War with new insights into the events leading up to the war, the war years, and the "politics of memory" that have occurred from post-war to modern day. The exhibit looks closely at the physical border that separated slave states from free states, particularly Ohio from Kentucky, but it also explores the wide spectrum of attitudes of the people in those areas. Because of its strong focus on non-military events and civilian contributions, as well as the war itself, Liberty on the Border puts the causes, effects, and meaning of the war into more personal terms.
