The War at Home is an exhibit ion recognizing the sesquicentennial of the United States Civil War. In an effort to remove the Civil War story from its traditional emphasis on battlefields, politics, and military tactics, The War at Home will convey the narrative from the perspective of communities so affected by the conflict. The towns of Winston and Salem were not unlike many Southern communities, and by focusing attention locally,  we intend to engage our audience more thoroughly with the themes of place and voice, and encourage a better understanding of the city in which we live.
