On Display: Not for Self, But for Country

Not for Self, But for Country
Selections from the Permanent Collection
Exhibition by the Curatorial Department

The Historic Huguenot Street Curatorial Department has developed an exhibit of Civil War-related objects, now on display in the DuBois Fort Visitors Center. Featuring a number of archival photos and objects, this is a chance to see some of the HHS historic collections pieces that are not typically on view, including weaponry, clothing, food, and photographs. A number of the objects featured in the exhibit were previously featured on this blog as well, such as the Brooks Brothers frock coat, the 1850 Tiffany & Co. sword, and the hardtack biscuit.

SUNY New Paltz History student and Collections intern Kathryn Graham will be giving a presentation on these objects on Sunday, September 14, in the DuBois Fort at 3pm.
