Through the use of historically correct clothing, weapons, and accoutrements, the presenters will explain what the daily life for soldiers as well as civilians was like during the American Civil War.  This is a hands-on presentation.  The audience will be able to handle both original and reproduction equipment and clothing.  This program at Pollard Memorial Library is presented by Southcoast Historical Associates, Swansea, MA.

This program is funded by Mass Humanities, which receives support from the Massachusetts Cultural Council and is an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

This program will be held in conjunction with the Library’s display of Forever Free, a traveling exhibition that “reexamines President Lincoln’s efforts toward the abolition of slavery during the Civil War,” which will run from May 15 to June 25, 2010 at the library.  Forever Free is organized by the Huntington Library and the Gilder Lehman Institute of American History in cooperation with the American Library Association.  It is made possible through major grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission.
