There is a new exhibit open at the Cattaraugus County Museum and Research Center. Titled “War is Cruelty; A Sesquicentennial of the Civil War in its Third Year”, the exhibit will run through October 2013.
This exhibit, intended to compliment our summer long series of Civil War related programming, is made possible in large part due to generous loans from private collectors within Cattaraugus County. We hope to see you!
