Treasures of the Civil War: Legendary Leaders Who Shaped a War and a Nation

During the Civil War, the fate of the nation rested with a few political, military and cultural leaders who had one thing in common: They achieved national fame by helping to chart a future course through a nation’s greatest crisis. As part of 150th anniversary commemorations, the Gettysburg National Military Park Visitors Center and Museum offers the new exhibit Treasures of the Civil War: Legendary Leaders Who Shaped a War and a Nation. Most of the nearly one hundred artifacts, from outstanding Civil War collections throughout the United States, are being exhibited at Gettysburg for the first time, offering a unique and rare glimpse into the personal and professional lives of 13 individuals who helped shape a nation: Abraham Lincoln, Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, Ulysses Grant, George G. Meade, John Reynolds, George Pickett, Alexander Webb, William Tecumseh Sherman, George Custer, John Mosby, Frederick Douglass and Clara Barton.
