A Civil War living history event will take place on campus on from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Jan. 14 that will feature participants from New Mexico and Colorado. Members of different Civil War units from around the area will portray soldiers representing artillery, cavalry and infantry units, as well as civilians of the period. Camps, weapons displays, musical performances, blacksmithing, and talks by various living historians in period dress all will focus on the Civil War, especially as it unfolded in the Southwest. Presentations will occur both inside and outside the library, depending on the weather.

In addition, the Library will host a traveling exhibit that traces the major events of the Civil War through the letters, personal accounts, and photographs of soldiers, families, and presidents. The free exhibit will be on display in the Library and Academic Resources Center (LARC) lobby from Jan. 12-Feb. 2.

Civil War 150 is a national traveling panel exhibition organized by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History in partnership with The Library of America. The project, Civil War 150: Exploring the War and Its Meaning through the Words of Those Who Lived It, has been made possible in part through a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor.
