“This Cruel War: Rutherford County Experiences the Civil War,” an array of nine panels interpreting civilian life in Rutherford County during the conflict, is available for viewing through Feb. 14th in the first floor lobby of MTSU's James E. Walker Library.

The panels were created by graduate students in “Essentials of Museum Management,” a class taught by Dr. Brenden Martin, an MTSU professor of history and director of the public history program.

Themes explored in the display include “Prelude to War,” “War Comes to Rutherford County,” “Occupation,” “Divided Loyalties,” “Mapping the War,” “Emancipation,” and “Legacies of the War.”

The exhibit, which commemorates the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War, is free and open to the public during regular library hours. For more information, contact Martin at 615-898-2643 or, or Kristen Keene, external relations specialist at Walker Library, at 615-898-5376 or
