Dogs of War coming to Miner Museum

CHAZY The Alice T. Miner Museum, 9618 State Route 9, will welcome back historian Robert Arnold III who will present his lecture, Let Loose the Dogs of War: New York in the American Civil War, an examination of the responses to the Civil War by New Yorkers. Mr. Arnold will present his lecture Friday, Feb. 15, beginning at 7 p.m. He will discuss how New York supplied more men, money and material in the Civil War than any other state North or South, but New Yorkers responded to the war in often diverse and contradictory fashions. Concentrating mainly on the home front, this presentation will examine a sample of those responses and some of the individuals who exemplify them. The lecture is presented as a compliment to the museums exhibit of Charles Moore letters written during the Civil War. The exhibit can be viewed only on the museum Web site, www.minermuseum.com , by clicking on the link titled & from the Alice archives in the top right corner of the Web page.
