All day
Michigan and the Civil War: The 150th Anniversary  (Exhibits (Museum, Gardens, ...))

Drawn from the MSU Museum's historical collection, the exhibit highlights Michigan connections in the Civil War. Notably, the entire first graduating class of the Michigan Agricultural College (now MSU) was excused before the graduation ceremonies in 1861 so that they could join the Union Army. Another thread: Luther Baker, the man who led the capture of Lincoln's assassin, was a Michigan native who returned to Lansing after the war. Several artifacts relate to Civil War General John G. Parkhurst from Coldwater, Mich., who spent time in the notorious Confederate Libby Prison. Other artifacts include Civil War uniforms, weapons, camp goods, medical equipment -- including an amputation and surgery kit -- and objects relating to the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln.
