The American Civil War as seen through the collections of the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center
Introduction to the Video Catalog
In celebration of the sesquicentennial of the Emancipation Proclamation
and the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Gotlieb Center staff and students of the Center mounted a major exhibition on the American Civil War
on display from March through mid-September of 2013.
For the benefit of those who were unable to view these “Treasures from the Vault” or want to learn more about them in their context,
this Video Catalog presents images of the exhibition.
The catalog also offers insights from scholars of this transformative era in the American adventure.
