OUR CIVIL WAR LEGACY:
MIDLAND’S PAST MARCHES FORWARD
Our 2013 exhibition builds on the current enthusiasm and awareness regarding the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. Although the battles were fought far from Midland County, our region was developed largely by Civil War veterans who came to this area after the war due to the enticement of land grants and other allurements.
NOTE: The exhibit will present regional information, artifacts and images rarely seen. If you have an interest in this fascinating chapter of American history, possess writing, research, artistic or other skills, and enjoy local history, we need your help! Call Gary at 989-631-5930 ext. 1300 or email email@example.com.
Our Civil War Legacy: Midland’s Past Marches Forward is made possible in part by a grant from Michigan Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
