Commemorating the American Civil War

Back in January I posted an announcement about our (then) newest web feature Looking at the Civil War: Massachusetts Finds Her Voice. That project was the first of many projects and events planned by the MHS to mark the sesquicentennial of the American Civil War.  While that project is going strong -- we are seven months and seven documents into the fifty-three month project -- many of our other Civil War related projects are just heating up and are not to be missed. 

You can visit our Commemorating the Civil War page to stay informed about upcoming events and projects happening at the MHS.  Currently there are listings for three upcoming public programs (in August, September, and November) and an upcoming exhibition opening in early October.  There is also information about educational resources and upcoming publication projects.

The Commemorating the Civil War page will be updated throughout the years of the sesquicentennial as new events & projects are added.  Be sure to bookmark the page so that you do not miss anything.
