Exhibit: Printmaking – Pop Culture of the Civil War

August 5 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

June 15, 2024 – August 18, 2024

During the Civil War, printed images had the power to influence perceptions and popular opinion, equal to today’s visual and digital media. The quick rise of popular media during the Civil War had a powerful and lasting impact on our country. This special exhibit of prints from the collection of the Civil War Museum shows the war as it was seen through the most important media of the time, the printed page.

The Civil War was America’s first illustrated war. At that time, the only view most Americans had of their country—and indeed, the World—came to them through the rapidly growing business of printed media. The war could not be seen from afar by any other means.
