On Display in the Library...

This Cruel War: Rutherford County Experiences the Civil War 

This exhibit was developed by MTSU graduate students and faculty in the department of History commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. 

Working under the direction of Dr. Bren Martin, the graduate students in Essentials of Museum Management developed the 
exhibition, which interprets civilian life in Rutherford County during the war. 

Nine panels cover the following themes: Prelude to War, War Comes to Rutherford County, Occupation, Divided Loyalties, Mapping the War, Emancipation, and the Legacies of the War. 

The exhibit will be on display now thru February 14th and is free and open to the public.
