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.
