Marietta / Touched By Conflict: Southeastern Ohio & the Civil War
Description:

Exhibit: Touched By Conflict: Southeastern Ohio & the Civil War
Through July 31, 2015
Campus Martius Museum, Marietta
Monday and Wednesday through Saturday 9:30 a.m.–5 p.m.
Sunday Noon–5 p.m.
Closed Tuesdays
Closed New Year's Day, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day

Using southeastern Ohio as a model, this exhibit explores events in Ohio leading to the Civil War, local support of the war effort, recruitment, service in various campaigns, and the private lives of both officers and private soldiers as they performed in campaigns in various armies. The exhibit also examines human costs of the conflict on Ohio communities and how veterans were assimilated back into home life following military duty.

Central to the presentation is the use of the collection of Ohioan Larry Strayer. Strayer is one of the foremost collectors of Civil War photographs in the United States. He also has amassed a significant collection of artifacts relating to the war, particularly from communities in southeast Ohio.

This exhibit, a cooperative venture between a number of area institutions and the Ohio Historical Society, highlights the stories of individuals who served in many capacities during the war, including soldiers, women from relief associations, politicians, and members of fraternal organizations and religious support groups.

Faces of Appalachia: Photographs by Albert J. Ewing
January 9, 2013–June 1, 2014  Extended through August 3, 2014
Wednesday–Saturday 10 a.m.–5 p.m., Sunday noon–5 p.m.
Ohio History Center, Columbus

(Please note: This exhibit appeared in the May-June issue of Echoes, the Ohio History Connection newsletter, as extended through Aug. 31, 2014. The correct end date is Sunday, Aug. 3, 2014)

See images selected from the Ohio History Connection's collection of over 5,000 glass plate negatives taken by traveling photographer Albert J. Ewing (1870-1934), in the first-ever exhibit of his work. A remarkable documentation of Appalachian life along the Ohio River in the late 1800s and early 1900s, Ewing's photographs preserve a sense of the region as it was at the turn of the last century. Ewing lived in Lowell, Ohio, a community on the Muskingum River north of Marietta, and worked primarily in West Virginia and along the Ohio River. In addition to many portraits, he captured the built environment of the communities in which he worked, including homes, farms, businesses and schools. See a selection of his photographs displayed with examples of his original glass plate negatives and cameras of the time period. Although the names of most of Ewing's subjects have been lost, his work brings their stories to life.
