History Happy Hour: Civil War in the West Photo Extravaganza

January 10 @ 6:30 pm 7:30 pm

In partnership with the American Battlefield Trust

During the Civil War, for the first time in history, the public was exposed to real-life images of the gruesome toll of battle. Although most photos were taken in a few eastern states, western sites were covered, too. From Charleston to Chattanooga, Port Hudson to Pensacola, Savannah to Nashville, Shiloh and the Shirley House, explore the story of the war in the West and the photos that defined it.
