Open Archive: Princeton’s Civil War

Wednesday, April 24, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

This Open Archive event is a chance to explore Princeton’s connections to and involvement in the Civil War, including the war’s effect on local families and the notable Princetonians who were involved.

The Historical Society of Princeton’s Open Archive series allows visitors to interact with little-seen artifacts and documents from the Historical Society of Princeton’s vast collection. Featuring a different theme each time, these events present historical material with minimal interpretation and encourage visitors to make observations, ask questions and be the historian themselves. HSP’s curator of collections and research will be on hand to share information and answer questions.
