  War of 1812 on the Ohio Frontier
Description:

On June 18, 1812, President James Madison declared war on Great Britain over the forced service of Americans in the British Royal Navy, trade restrictions, and increasing British influence among Native Americans. The year 2013 marks the bicentennial of the major events of the War of 1812 on the so-called ‘Ohio Frontier’ -- a region that included areas of Ohio, Michigan, and Canada that bordered on Lake Erie. Through the holdings of the Hayes Presidential Center and the Lou Schultz Collection, the exhibit The War of 1812 on the Ohio Frontier explores America's early defeats and its eventual victories at Fort Meigs, Fort Stephenson, on Lake Erie, and at the Thames -- successes that inspired a sense of pride throughout the young nation. This exhibit is made possible through sponsorship from the Sidney Frohman Foundation.


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

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.

Featuring over 70 pieces of historical and contemporary art, How I Got Over includes paintings, quilts and found objects as well as the work of Ohio artists including Dayton native Willis "Bing" Davis. As a whole, How I Got Over tells a story fundamental to the human experience: overcoming adversity.

Faces of Appalachia: Photographs by Albert Ewing
January 9, 2913–June 1, 2014  Extended through August 31, 2014
Wednesday-Saturday 10 a.m.–5 p.m., Sunday noon–5 p.m.
Ohio History Center, Columbus

In 1982, the Ohio Historical Society acquired a collection of over 5,000 glass plate negatives taken by traveling photographer Albert J. Ewing (1870-1934). Faces of Appalachia is 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 place for the region. 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 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 the original glass plate negatives and cameras from the time period. Even though the names of most of Ewing's subjects have been lost, his work brings their stories to life.
