In observance of the sesquicentennial of the Civil War (1861-65), the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources (www.ncculture.com) has organized the "Freedom, Sacrifice, Memory: Civil War Sesquicentennial Photography Exhibit" to travel the state from April 1, 2011 through spring 2013. Visitors will see well-known Confederate generals, women who served as Confederate spies, reenactment images of soldiers and battles, and more. The battlefield, home front, African Americans, and women all are reflected in the exhibit. An accompanying notebook will offer sketches of the generals, African Americans fleeing bondage, a woman whose home became a hospital, and other glimpses of lives from that turbulent time. The tour will visit forty-nine public libraries and was organized through the State Library of North Carolina. For information on the tour, visit www.nccivilwar150.com or call (919) 807-7389.
