A temporary Civil War exhibit highlighting the contributions of soldiers from the Midwest is now on display at Fort Larned Historic Site in Kansas.
The three-part exhibit highlights the importance of the region's resources and waterways to both sides during the war. It also explores the impact of the guerrilla war between the Jayhawkers in Kansas and the Bushwhackers in Missouri.
After Jan. 1, the exhibit will move to William Howard Taft National Historic Site in Cincinnati. It is part of a National Park Service commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War.
Fort Larned National Historic Site is six miles west of Larned in central Kansas. Admission is free.
