150th anniversary commemoration of battle includes 'Visualizing War' exhibit at Gettysburg College

The town of Gettysburg is preparing for the 150th anni­versary of the momentous battle that took place there during the American Civil War, the battle that many historians name as the turning point of the war.

Part of the celebration is an exhibit at Gettysburg College’s Schmucker Art Gallery. “Visual­izing War,” curated by Civil War Institute fellows Natalie Sherif, Alexandra Ward and Andrew Eg­bert, examines perceptions of the war from the perspective of the North and how the visual representations of objects from the era — such as maps and sheet music — reveal how the political and social views of the time shifted.

A reception will be held at the gallery on Sept. 11 from 6-7 p.m., and a gallery talk with Andrew Egbert will take place at noon on Sept. 20.
