This exhibit is being produced in collaboration with the Old Guard of the Gate City Guard of Atlanta, Inc., State Bank & Trust Company, Kennesaw Museum Foundation and the Southern Museum. The gallery will be open to the public from May 28, 2011 until October 16, 2011.

    My husband and I are leading a Civil War Caravan in March 2012. We are planning to visit the Southern Museum of Civil War and Locomotive History and are wondering if there are any special events/exhibits that will be available during March 2012 that commemorate the susquecentennial of the Civil War. If so we would try to plan our trip around them. Please advise. Thank you. Beth Jones
