The University of New England and the Saco Museum have teamed up this to create an exhibition celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. Dr. Elizabeth A. De Wolfe, Professor of History at the University of New England, and Camille Smalley, Collection and Research Manager for the Saco Museum, team-taught an exhibition class titled "John Haley's Civil War." The resulting exhibition of the same name, is curated by students in the class, will feature a treasure trove of artifacts related to the Civil War-prints by Winslow Homer, decorative arts, Civil War weaponry, uniforms, and much more. On the Dyer Library/Saco Museum Facebook Page, daily updates from Haley's diary are posted to track his adventure 150 years ago.
