Inside the Vaults – Discovering the Civil War

Today’s post comes from National Archives Office of Strategy and Communications staff writer Rob Crotty.

Part Two of Discovering the Civil War opens at the National Archives in Washington, DC, on November 10!

Rarely seen footage of Civil War veterans, intelligence gathering with balloons, prosthetic limbs, two different Thirteenth Amendments, and the Confederate States of Mexico are just a few of the ways that the National Archives Experience is showing you the Civil War as you’ve never seen it.

Watch the latest “Inside the Vaults” video below, and then visit us at the Lawrence F. O’Brien Gallery at the National Archives in Washington, DC, on November 10.
