“THE CIVIL WAR IN THE SOUTHERN HIGHLANDS: A HUMAN PERSPECTIVE”
This exhibition, presented by the Rural Heritage Museum at Mars Hill University, presents rare original letters, newly-discovered documents, dozens of historic photographs and authentic objects from the Civil War period. It examines the tragedy of the infamous “Shelton Laurel Massacre” using newly-discovered documents and reveals the personal struggle of ordinary people: women, children and former African slaves, who were left to tend the homes and farms. The consequences for them were often as brutal as for the soldiers who went to battle.
Exhibition will run through March 4, 2018
Open Daily 11-5 (Closed Mondays)
