By Staff Report-

NORTH MANCHESTER —North Manchester Center for History will host Faces in the Crowd: Indiana and the Political Process, an Indiana Historical Society (IHS) traveling exhibit that shows how Indiana has entertained debates on issues and candidates throughout the state's history.

Through April 10, the exhibit will be on display at the museum located in downtown North Manchester, according to a news release from the North Manchester Center for History.

Faces in the Crowd is not the story of the candidates behind the microphone, but of the individual citizens in the crowd — each of whom play a crucial role in ensuring the electoral process works. Since the early years of the electoral political system, Hoosiers have attended rallies, expressed their opinions and participated at the polls. They have supported and opposed candidates, and of course, run for office themselves, stated the release.

The included images have been collected from across the state, showcasing Hoosiers at a host of campaign events throughout history. The IHS collections images that appear in the exhibit were placed in context with support and cooperation from The Indianapolis Star, the Calumet Regional Archives and the University of Southern Indiana.
