On Saturday, February 2nd, join the Woburn Historical Society for the grand opening of its Civil War exhibit! Featuring time period artifacts, memorabilia, photos and dioramas, this exhibit is a great educational opportunity to learn more about the Civil War on its 150th anniversary.
The exhibit will also feature soldiers' and officers' uniforms and a "Hall of Heroes," including portraits of 95 Woburn soldiers who fought in the War Between the States.
During the Open House, attendees will get the opportunity to purchase the book titled "A Union Town During the Civil War, Woburn, Massachusetts" by local author Leon Basile and a film by the Society, "In the Cause of Liberty, Woburn in the Civil War."
The Open House will run from 10:00am to 2:00pm at the Burdett Mansion (7 Mishawum Rd) in Woburn. Light refreshments will be served.
