Logansport, Ind.—Civil War history will come alive for visitors who experience Faces of the Civil War, an Indiana Historical Society (IHS) traveling exhibit. The Cass County Historical Society (CCHS) is hosting the exhibit now through April 29th at their main office at 421 E. Broadway.

The exhibit brings to life the stories of many Hoosiers whose lives were touched, and in some cases taken, by the Civil War. Not all are well known or revered—many were just everyday citizens fulfilling their duties to their friends, family, state and country. Rather than focusing on statistics and large scale battles, the exhibit illustrates how regular people coped with the tragic experiences of the day—all from an Indiana perspective.

Along with the IHS’s exhibit, the CCHS will display an array of local Civil War artifacts from their collection. On Monday, April 25 at 6:00 p.m., a special presentation about the Civil War and the community’s experience will be given at the CCHS, 421 E. Broadway. 

Faces of the Civil War is available to view through April 29th during the regular CCHS main office hours: Monday/Wednesday/Friday 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. 

The exhibit will also be open Tuesday/Friday 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. and Saturday 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
