Looking to spend a few quality hours back in the 1860’s?

The Canton Museum of Art, is hosting as part of their 150th anniversary of the American Civil War an exhibit “A Nation Divided, The Heartland Responds” through Oct. 30.

I visited the exhibition last Saturday afternoon and was very overwhelmed by the quality of the exhibit. I spent over three hours touring the exhibit. The exhibit is made up of photo enlargement, uniforms, costumes, weapons and other Civil War memorabilia.

The museum reproduced 52 images and enlarged them. It also includes illustration from Winslow Homer, an artist for Harper’s Weekly. I highly recommend stopping in a viewing this fine exhibit.
