“I wish you were here if only for a short time.” Champaign County and the Civil War, 1861-1865

As we reflect on the 150th anniversary of the opening of hostilities, our display case exhibit commemorates the sacrifices of the men and women of Champaign County during the American Civil War. Images, letters, official documents, and a surprise or two help to tell the story of those who endured those difficult years from the local communities. All of the materials for the exhibit are taken from our collections here at the Champaign County Historical Archives.

We invite you to stop by and take a look anytime during our open hours: Monday-Saturday, 9AM-5PM, and Sunday 1-5PM.
