Gathered from private collections, as well as from our own Green-Wood Historic Fund collections, this exhibition features fascinating memorabilia from the Civil War, much of it never before displayed in public. See, up close, two authentic Civil War cannons, life-sized zinc sculptures of Union soldiers, and genuine Civil War uniforms; hear the stories and tales of the brave men who fought in the Civil War; experience the extraordinary stories of the patriotism of Green-Wood’s Civil War veterans.

In Green-Wood’s Historic Chapel, just inside the main Arch at 25th Street and Fifth Avenue. Admission is FREE, though we respectfully request that you register here online in advance so we can gauge response.

The exhibition is open from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends from May 28th until July 24th. Click play below to watch a photo slideshow from the exhibition:
