The Civil War, 1861 - 1865, split the nation apart. Kentucky, a southern state with strong ties to north and south, was caught in the middle. This interactive exhibit explores the Civil War in Kentucky. Field trip students will be guided by a costumed docent and engage in a variety of hands-on activities depending upon grade level. Examples of activities include dressing in period clothing, packing a haversack, and preparing a battlefield sling.
