The South Shore Civil War Memorial Trail’s exhibit, Region United, Nation Divided: Following Lincoln, opened at the Indiana Welcome Center in Hammond this week and runs through April 30. The South Shore Convention and Visitors Authority says the exhibit showcases the region’s answer to Abraham Lincoln’s call to action during the Civil War.
The exhibit features hundreds of photographs, artifacts and reproductions of Northwest Indiana regiment battle flags. Additionally, there will be a reproduction of Lincoln’s funeral train and map as well as the Indiana Historical Society’s traveling exhibit, The Faces of Lincoln.
Mitch Markovitz on Thursday unveiled a new South Shore Line poster depicting the South Shore Civil War Memorial Trail. The South Shore Civil War Memorial Trail is a collection of the last known resting places, monuments, architectural icons and sites with Civil War ties that are related to the brave men and women from the region who sacrificed during the most pivotal period in our nation’s history. The trail serves as a guide for visitors who wish to pay their respects to the veterans and learn the stories of their humanity and sacrifice during and after the war.
The Indiana Welcome Center is open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is located at 7770 Corinne Drive, Hammond, Indiana 46323. For more information on the exhibit or the South Shore Civil War Memorial Trail, visit www.southshorecva.com/civilwartrail.
