NORTH MANCHESTER —Civil War history will come alive for visitors who experience Faces of the Civil War, an Indiana Historical Society (IHS) traveling exhibit.
From Oct. 3–30, North Manchester Center for History will host the exhibit in the museum located at 122 E. Main St., North Manchester, according to a news release from the North Manchester Historical Society.
The exhibit brings to life the stories of many Hoosiers whose lives were touched, and in some cases taken, by the Civil War. Not all are well known or revered — many were about everyday citizens fulfilling their duties to their friends, family, state and country, stated the release. Rather than focusing on statistics and large scale battles, the exhibit illustrates how regular people coped with the tragic experiences of the day — all from an Indiana perspective.
