    The American Civil War: Treasures from the Vault

    This major exhibition marks the 150th anniversary of the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation and explores the causes, reactions, and responses to the American Civil War. On display are letters, journals, maps, official documents and publications, all selected from collections held in the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center. Categories explored in the exhibition include slavery, emancipation, Abraham Lincoln, his Cabinet, and his assassination, the armies of both sides, the Union navy, and the difficulties faced post-war. There are also investigations into slave narratives, the relatively new art of photography, poetry and popular music of the day, to name a few.
