When: Now until February 18th, 2014
Where: The Jewish Museum of Maryland
Come explore a Civil War you have never experienced before! It tells the story of events of national importance, through the lens of one small group in the American populous. It looks at the ways in which the Civil War was a crucible for American Jewish identity, and how it laid the groundwork for their integration and Americanization on a large scale. It focuses not only on the battlefield, but on the difficult choices made by non-combatants throughout the struggle. The exhibition also looks at the role the conflict played in establishing a framework for the full participation of Jews in American life – militarily, politically, economically and socially – and how it set the stage for massive Jewish immigration decades later.
