Women on the Border: Maryland Perspectives of the Civil War
A new exhibition featuring rare items from the University of Maryland Libraries explores how women perceived and experienced the Civil War.
"Women on the Border: Maryland Perspectives of the Civil War" features photographs, sheet music, rare books, manuscripts, and materials never before displayed together, including a rare sketchbook drawn by John Jacob Omenhausser, a Confederate prisoner whose gritty depiction of prison life is offset by his colorful sketch of idealized Southern belles.
The exhibit will run September 12th, 2011 until July 13th, 2012 and will be open Monday-Friday 10am-5pm. Additional hours during the academic semester are Wednesdays 5pm-8pm and Sundays 1pm-6pm.
