Our nation is remembering the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War. Organizations, small groups of individuals and museums all over the country are bringing our remembrance to those tragic days in our history.
The Marietta Museum of History, for example, is presenting new exhibits and hosting events from now through Saturday, July 12th. The museum will be open daily — from 10 AM until to 4 PM Mondays through Saturdays and from noon until 4 PM Sundays.
You’re bound to find their two major presentations fascinating:
- Peeling Back the Layers: Victorian Wedding Ensembles
- Capturing Secession: Confederate Portraits from the David W. Vaughan Collection.
These two new exhibits, in addition to Bleeding Gray & Blue: Marietta’s Civil War Hospitals, will give local and out of town visitors a rare chance to experience many aspects of the Civil War in a building that was here during it all!
In conjunction with the exhibits, the Museum will also have lectures and book signings from noted historians, Civil War artifact collectors and award winning authors.
During the final week, we will have the encampment of the 17th Corps Field Hospital, which is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to educating the public about Civil War medicine.
We hope you will be able to join us for all the great events happening not only at the Marietta Museum of History but all around Marietta.
