9:00 am "Civil War: My Brother, My Enemy"

The War Between the States pitted brother against brother. Nowhere was this division more apparent than in the border state of Kentucky— where family lines were often the battle lines. The Frazier History Museum opens its newest exhibition, “Civil War: My Brother, My Enemy” on October 15, in conjunction with the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War.

“My Brother, My Enemy,” which runs through April 7, 2012, examines how Kentucky’s distinctive physical and political positioning led to deep and lasting divisions among families and friends. Unlike many other Civil War studies that tend to focus on the battlefield chronology, the 3,800 square foot exhibition delves into the heart-wrenching and personal stories of the nationwide conflict that forever severed once close-knit relationships here in Kentucky.

In the galleries, students work on investigation guides to discover groups who fought for their independence throughout American history. History comes to life, as students view a performance such as “Patriots or Traitors,” “Molly Pitcher” or “The Battle of Trenton.” Click to register.

9:00 am "Civil War: My Brother, My Enemy"

The War Between the States pitted brother against brother. Nowhere was this division more apparent than in the border state of Kentucky— where family lines were often the battle lines. The Frazier History Museum opens its newest exhibition, “Civil War: My Brother, My Enemy” on October 15, in conjunction with the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War.

“My Brother, My Enemy,” which runs through April 7, 2012, examines how Kentucky’s distinctive physical and political positioning led to deep and lasting divisions among families and friends. Unlike many other Civil War studies that tend to focus on the battlefield chronology, the 3,800 square foot exhibition delves into the heart-wrenching and personal stories of the nationwide conflict that forever severed once close-knit relationships here in Kentucky.
