The Civil War Museum After Dark: Wide Awakes

October 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Wednesday, October 30  |  7:00pm – 8:00pm  |  Presenter: Doug Dammann  |  $16 ($20 for non-members)  |  Register Here

Who were the Wide Awakes and why did they participate in nighttime torch-lit parades wearing special costumes? Why did the wounds of some soldiers glow after the Battle of Shiloh? Did Mary Todd Lincoln attend seances at the White House?

Curator Doug Dammann will lead a lantern-lit tour of the Civil War Museum’s Fiery Trial gallery that explores these and other strange and odd stories of the Civil War.
