A House Divided: Civil War in Kentucky

Family Workshop: It was difficult to live in Kentucky during the Civil War. We will learn why and then use the interactive museum exhibit “Torn Within, Threatened Without,” to explore the choices people made then and think about what we would have done in their place. Next, we will explore and experience life as a Union soldier as we learn how to make hard tack (a food), try on uniforms and learn games soldiers played to pass the time when they were in camp!

Instructor: Rebecca Wishnevski, history educator
