Soldiers, Sweethearts and Statesmen: Kentuckians in the Civil War

In 1861, Kentucky found itself “stuck in the middle” as North and South went to war. What did that mean for their everyday lives? Using artifacts and documents from KHS collections, we will explore the challenges Kentuckians experienced during the Civil War. Students will discuss tough questions, devise a defense strategy, and practice home front crafts necessary for survival. Best for ages 6 to 12, but all are welcome!

Instructor: Carol Bolton
