Dueling Visions of Liberty: Depictions of the American Civil War presents the diverse political, regional, and racial viewpoints expressed during the American Civil War through art. The exhibit will feature a variety of artistic medium including contemporary paintings, lithographs from news journals, sculptures, photographs, and other period artifacts to represent the viewpoints of those who fought, stayed behind to defend their homes, and those that were neutral witnesses to the conflict. This diversity of mediums also represents the evolution of artistic expression and development in the United States during the 1860s. Charles Chamberlain, Ph.D., Curator.
