General George Custer was nicknamed “Ringlets" by his men during the Civil War for his vanity about his appearance and his love for his long, curling blond hair.
March 2, 2012 – Civil War: My Brother, My Enemy
“Civil War: My Brother, My Enemy” This Year Only!
(Recommended for grades 5 through 12)
Here’s your chance to take students beyond the text book and experience the American Civil War like they never have before. Students will participate in an interactive session in the temporary exhibit, “Civil War: My Brother, My Enemy,” which was created by exhibit staff at the Frazier Museum to share Kentucky’s exceptional Civil War experience as a border state. Individual experiences will be shared through a collection of stories and artifacts, including uniforms, letters, photos and personal memorabilia belonging to Mary Todd Lincoln. The learning continues as students view a live performance such as, “Clara Barton” or “Robert Gould Shaw.”
