The final installation in our commemoration for the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War. This exhibit, which will be featured in our Lobby Gallery from September 5, 2014 to February 1, 2015, is a collection of illustrated newspapers, copy books, diaries, and letters encompassing the time period 1860-1865.
These materials will allow you to experience the emotions and opinions expressed by the people of Charleston during the War from varying perspectives. In reading the original words, one is able to feel the energy of the City as it goes from excited and eager to deflated and defeated. You'll regret the day you ever done it. (a direct quote excerpted from one of our displayed articles) provides an interesting and personal look at the Civil War's impact on Charleston.
