Gallery Tour: Fateful Lightning: Religion and the Civil War

When: Sun., Aug. 11, 1 p.m. 2013

Join museum educator Sean Kane for a gallery tour focusing on the role religion played in the American Civil War. From the Bible’s use to justify and condemn slavery to the religious revivals that swept up soldiers in camp, this tour will highlight artifacts that tell the fascinating story of a war in which "both sides read the same Bible, and pray to the same God; and each invokes his aid against the other.”

Price: $4 - $8 Children 5 and under free
