Through a series of panels, the exhibit includes a timeline and dozens of images of people, places, and battles in Arkansas.

The exhibit is on display in the library’s lobby where it will remain through Jan. 22.

As part of the library’s Beyond Battlefields: Making Sense of the American Civil War program series the exhibit is made available through funding through the American Library Association, the Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission and the National Endowment for the Humanities.

The display was last in Fayetteville in September 2011 at the Clinton House Museum. Its next stop is Tolleson Elementary School in Jacksonville where it will be on display Jan. 30 through Feb. 12.
