The Glory of Old Monroe: Rochester in the Civil War

When: Tue., April 14, 7 p.m. 2015

150 years ago this month, Rochester celebrated the end of four years of bloody conflict. More than 1,000 men from the area had given their lives for the Union, and the war transformed the city’s culture in profound and painful ways. An exhibition at Rush Rhees Library commemorates the experiences of Rochester’s soldiers and citizens, from national heroes to unsung drummer boys, prisoners of war, and humanitarians.
