Desolate Pride

The story of the Civil War can be a painful one to tell in many ways. The Desolate Pride exhibit emphasizes the tensions of the war by focusing in on local stories. Featured artifacts include an epaulet from Col. D. A. Ledbetter and an authentic “Red Shirt” worn in the post war South by a member of the infamous group.
