The Kentucky Library & Museum (KYLM) opened its new Civil War exhibit entitled â€œA Star in Each Flag: Conflict in Kentucky.â€
A Bowling Green Area Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting was held to kick off the opening on the morning of October 24, 2008 at KYLM on Western Kentucky Universityâ€™s campus.
The exhibit shows the strong conflict and opposing views regarding slavery between friends, neighbors and community members in the state of Kentucky. In addition, guests can walk through a simulated campsite, view a slave cabin, step into a community post office, and examine period artifacts including John Hunt Morganâ€™s saddle, various medical instruments, Civil War flags, weapons and more. Families will enjoy visiting the Victorian photo studio where they can dress in period clothing and have a picture taken.
KYLM has just launched a new Web site to feature its Civil War collection.
