The Civil War - 150 Years


One hundred and fifty years ago, our country was divided: 
North and South... White and Black... Freedom and Slavery...

To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, 
Rhode Island College hosts a symposium

"Rhode Island in the Civil War: 
Public History and Popular Memory" 

on Friday, April 8th 
The event includes reenactments, period music, demonstrations, 
panel discussion with historians, exhibits, 
even a game of baseball as it was played in 1864.
It's the Civil War with a R.I. connection.
