Civil War exhibit opens in Maryland

The Maryland Historical Society's museum opened Maryland's largest and most comprehensive Civil War exhibit this month.

The impact of the war is told in personal terms in "Divided Voices: Maryland in the Civil War." The exhibit occupies more than 5,000 square feet and tells the story of a tragedy in three acts: the romantic war, the real war and the long reunion.

The exhibit will run for four years with annual updates.

Admission is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors, $4 for ages 3 to 18, free for 2 and younger. The museum is free on the first Thursday of each month. For details, go to www.mdhs.org or call (410) 685-3750.
