NASHVILLE (AP) — A national traveling exhibit on the Civil War is on display at Nashville’s Green Hills Library.
The exhibit lets viewers experience the war through the eyes of politicians, soldiers, families and freed slaves.
It includes letters, personal accounts and images that demonstrate how people grappled with the end of slavery, the nature of democracy and citizenship, the human toll of the war and the role of a president in wartime.
According to the library, the Gilder Lehrman Institute developed the exhibition to mark the 150th anniversary of the Civil War.
