Sesquicentennial Photography Exhibit travels statewide
It was called a brother’s war, and nowhere was that more true than in North Carolina. The American Civil War claimed more lives than any military engagement undertaken by this country. North Carolina lost at least 35,000 soldiers, more than any other southern state, and great hardships were suffered by those both at war and left at home.
In observance of the sesquicentennial of the Civil War (1861-1865), the N.C. Department of Cultural Resources has organized the “Freedom, Sacrifice, Memory: Civil War Sesquicentennial Photography Exhibit” to travel the state from April 1 through spring 2013 as part of its commemoration.
